CYPRESS HILLS, Brooklyn — A 28-year-old woman was killed and a man was injured in a Brooklyn shooting on Sunday, police said.

Stephanie Munoz was found with a gunshot wound to the abdomen on Atlantic Avenue near Lincoln Avenue around 6:15 a.m., NYPD officials said. She was rushed to the hospital where she died.

Police were later notified of another victim from the same shooting: a 26-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the torso, taken to the hospital via private means.

Police originally believed another man hospitalized with a gunshot wound was a victim in this incident, but later determined he was injured in a separate, unrelated shooting.
