Baby among four shot dead in Brooklyn

An infant girl and three adults were shot in the head and killed in a Brooklyn apartment on Wednesday morning, police and sources said.

The four victims – three men and a 1-year-old baby girl – were discovered by the child’s grandmother, who was coming to babysit, at around 5 a.m. inside a fourth-floor apartment of a nine-story Riverdale Osbourne Tower on Thatford Avenue in Brownsville.

The child’s lifeless body was discovered in a bedroom, along with a 27-year-old man. The 16-year-old victim was found in another bedroom, and a 57-year-old man was discovered in the bathroom, said Deputy Chief Michael Kemper in a press conference at the scene.

All of the victims were related, either by blood or marriage. They were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Authorities are still investigating whether or not the bloodbath was a triple murder-suicide. A gun and shell casings were recovered at the scene. No suicide note was found.

The investigation is ongoing.
