4 people killed in Brooklyn apartment

Four people, including one young child, were found shot dead in Brooklyn Wednesday morning, the police said.

Police say they received a call around 5 a.m. from a 53-year-old woman who lives in the Thatford Avenue apartment and was returning home. She has written for MSNBC.com and was editor-in-chief of NYU's Washington Square News. All four had been shot in the head, the NYPD said. All of the deceased were reportedly related by blood or marriage.

"In the nature of this business, we deal with death and tragic scenes".

There is no current motive in the incident, but a gun was recovered inside the apartment, said Kemper.


"My baby is gone", the mom sobbed at the vigil outside of the Riverdale Osborne Towers in Brownsville.

The victims, three men and a 1-year-old girl were discovered in an apartment in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn early Wednesday by the infant's grandmother, ABC 7 reported. Like other parts of the city, it has experienced a steep decline in crime in recent years.

The New York City walkouts, which were among thousands held across the US and around the world, honored victims of a high school massacre at a Florida school last month.
