Brooklyn Man Shoots 3 Women to Death, Kills Himself

NEW YORK — A man shot the mother of his child and two of her daughters dead inside a Brooklyn apartment before turning the gun on himself, police said.

The victims were shot shortly after 11 p.m. Monday in an apartment in the Van Dyke Houses in the Brownsville neighborhood, police said.

Officers went to the apartment after a 9-year-old girl called 911 to report a shooting, a police spokesperson said. The officers found a 45-year-old woman, a 20-year-old woman and a teenage girl dead from gunshot wounds. 

A 46-year-old man was found shot to death in a walkway nearby, police said. 

Police believe the man shot the women and the teenager and then shot himself in the head. Two guns were recovered near his body.

The man and the 45-year-old woman were the parents of the 9-year-old who called 911, police said. The two younger victims were the 45-year-old woman's daughters with a different father, they said.

The victims' names were not immediately released.
