Nothing like going to work and hearing gun shots and seeing people running 400 ft away. Apparently 3 people were murdered? #bushwickshooting

Sources tell NBC NY that "shots rang out" after "two men confronted a group of suspects who had allegedly been breaking into cars in the area." The two men were shot, and NBC NY reports that the woman was a bystander.
We'll update as more details become available.
Update 11:40 a.m.: Police say the deceased is a 53-year-old male. When first responders arrived at the scene, he "was unconscious and unresponsive and suffered a gunshot wound to his upper torso." The second victim is a 57-year-old male, who sustained a gunshot wound to his right torso and his right ear. He's currently in stable condition.
The third victim is a 13-year-old female who sustained a gunshot wound to her hip. She's listed in stable condition at Elmhurst Hospital.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce tells the Daily News that police are searching for three suspects who were trying to break into cars in the neighborhood when the two male victims, who work in the area, confronted them.
"They came out and interrupted a car break-in by three individuals," Boyce said. "At which time they challenged. Right now we're trying to figure out exactly what happened."
Police say the wounded teenage girl was an innocent bystander on her way to school.
