WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn — One person is dead and two people were injured in a triple shooting in Brooklyn Thursday afternoon, according to authorities.

An FDNY spokesperson said EMS officials responded to 666 Broadway, near Bartlett Street, in the area known as Broadway Triangle at about 3:20 p.m. for a report of a shooting.

Three people were shot, according to officials.

Responding officers arrived to find an unidentified man lying in the hallway, unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the head, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Inside the apartment, officers found a 29-year-old woman who had been shot in the right arm, as well as a 36-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the torso, authorities said.

The two injured victims were taken to local hospitals by EMS.

No arrests had been made as of Friday morning as police continued their investigation into the deadly shooting.

The shooting happened just hours after the NYPD released its May crime statistics, which showed a 73% increase in shootings compared to May 2020.
