Victims of the incident were transported to Kings County Hospital and Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Shea said there was "evidence of gambling" including cards and dice inside.

The victims' ages range between 32 and 49 years old.

At least four people died and three were wounded in a shooting at a social club in NY early Saturday, police said.

An NYPD spokesman says police responding to a call about shots fired just before 7 a.m. Saturday found four men dead at the scene.

Police said that the shooting took place at 74 Utica Avenue, in the Weeksville neighbourhood of Brooklyn. Investigators say at least 15 shots were fired.

Police said they estimate around 15 people were inside and that 15 gunshots were fired at the venue that described as being "chaos".

As of now, two people have been brought in for questioning as part of the early stages of the investigation. The gambling operation was unlicensed, but police had not previously received any complaints about the location, authorities said.

No arrests have been made, and police do not know the motive for the shootings, Shea said.

Chief of Detectives Dermot F. Shea said at a press conference several hours after the shooting that at least two firearms - a 9mm handgun and a revolver - were recovered from the scene.

This is a developing story.
