NYC Police: Gunman, 3 others dead in Brooklyn

NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a man firing a rifle shot three people to death at a Brooklyn row house before killing himself.

The violence erupted early Monday, minutes after midnight, at a 3-story building in Williamsburg.

Police say the shooting may have involved a previous dispute between the shooter and the victims. They are investigating a possible link to a music band.

The victims were found on the second and third floors. The shooter was discovered on the roof.

Police confirmed they were all male and died from gunshot wounds.

One person was also wounded on the arm and has been hospitalized in stable condition.

Police say officers didn't fire their weapons and reports of sniper fire on them are incorrect.
