One man died and three others sustained injuries in a shooting at an alleged gambling den in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday night, according to police and neighbors.

The incident occurred when a fight broke out on the ground floor of a deteriorated building after 10 p.m., police said, according to the New York Post. A 30-year-old man was shot in the chest and died, while three other men aged 31, 31, and 44 were shot but are in stable condition after being hospitalized, according to officials, the Post reported.

Investigators presume the shooting was gambling related, the Post reported. The incident occurred at a dilapidated brick building on Hegman Ave. in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, according to the Post.

A 50-year-old neighbor to the building who identified himself as a gambler said the site is a well-known place people go to gamble in the neighborhood, the Post reported.

“They always gambling inside,” the man said, according to the Post. “Day and night, they be gambling — dice, they play poker and the Cee-lo.”

He said that bets inside range from a few dollars to thousands, the Post reported. “Friday and Saturday night you can’t even walk inside it’s so crowded,” the man added.

No arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified, according to police, the Post reported.

The NYPD did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
