At a news conference hours later, Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said investigators were trying to determine if a gambling dispute, a robbery, or something else was to blame for the violence.

'A bit of a chaotic scene,' Shea said.

Three others were injured in the shooting, including a 38-year-old woman and 35-year-old man who were shot in the leg. Another man, 49, was shot in the right arm. Another person received a minor injury in the leg as they tried to flee the scene.

Police received reports of gunshots fired around 6.55am and firefighters initially responded to the scene at 7.06am. 

Cops recovered a 9mm handgun and revolver at the scene. It was not immediately clear whether there was one shooter or an exchange of gunfire.

No one was immediately charged in the shooting, but police were questioning survivors and reviewing security camera footage.

'We have some individuals back at the 77th Precinct and we're trying to piece together exactly what transpired in that location,' Shea said.

The unlicensed club, adorned with a sign identifying it as the 'Triple A Aces Private & Social Event Space,' was operating on the first floor of an older wood-frame townhouse on a block with some empty storefronts and boarded-up buildings.

The location at 74 Utica Ave is listed as permanently closed on Google but cops said it was being used for unlicensed gambling. 

Isaac Mickens, a community organizer, described the place as a 'hole-in-the-wall gambling den' in an interview with The New York Times. 'It was real tight, real small, casual, low-key,' Mickens said. 'A little hangout spot.'

Mickens said that when he headed toward the club after the shooting he saw people running and screaming, 'Oh God! Oh God!'

The shooting was the second mass killing in New York in a week. Four homeless men were beaten to death , allegedly by another homeless man, on Oct. 5 in Manhattan's Chinatown.

Until those killings, the city had been on pace to challenge its post-World War II record for the fewest homicides. Last year it had fewer than 300 in a city of more than 8.5 million people.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, said on Twitter that the city 'awoke to senseless gun violence.'

'I've said it before and I'll say it until I can't anymore: we have an epidemic of gun violence that spares no community - and it won't stop until we get guns off our streets once and for all,' he said.  

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call NYPD investigators at 800-577-TIPS.

NYC is a Hell hole, who needs to die and go to hell when you live it in reality.

Comment by Jeffrey L Donovan on October 13, 2019 at 6:52am

While we are quick to condem and march against  people from other groups who kills us, the silence is usually

deafening when we kill each other.  Gambling, guns and money is a deadly cocktail or a time-bomb waiting to explode.
