EAST FLATBUSH, Brooklyn — Four people were shot in Brooklyn early Saturday morning after a barrage of bullets rang out, police said.

The NYPD received a 911 call and two ShotSpotter activations near 1440 Utica Ave. in East Flatbush around 3:25 a.m. The 911 caller reported a woman had been shot, and the two ShotSpotter notifications reported five and 12 shots had been fired, respectively.

Responding officers found a 36-year-old victim with multiple gunshot wounds and a 25-year-old woman who was shot in the torso, police said. They were taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Investigators later determined two additional victims were involved in the shooting but had fled the scene, according to police.

A 28-year-old man was found at a gas station on Kings Highway with gunshot wounds to the torso and butt. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition, police said.

The fourth victim, a 31-year-old man, was taken to a hospital by private means. He was listed in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his legs, authorities said.

No arrests had been made, as of Saturday morning.

The motive remained under investigation, but a police spokesperson said there was a dispute involving the victims prior to the shooting.
