The violence broke out in front of Remsen Hall. According to the Daily News, "The gunshots rang out around 8:30 p.m., shortly after 70 guests poured into the hall on Remsen Ave. near Lenox Road in Brownsville to celebrate the pregnancy, police and witnesses said. Well-wishers carrying gifts were turned away from the crime scene, witnesses said."
The victims were a 22-year-old man who was shot in the chest; a 22-year-old woman shot in the arm; a 21-year-old man shot in the leg; and a 20-year-old man shot in the shoulder. All are expected to survive.
Police are investigating the shooting and looking to see if it's linked to the baby shower. A local pastor told the NY Times, "It don’t make no sense. I think that there’s a better way to resolve our conflicts without pulling out a gun."
