Police found a 52-year-old woman with a gunshot wound at the home at 95th Street and 11th Avenue, as well as a 27-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, police said.

Another man, 33, was found a mile away with a gunshot wound to his head and a gun next to his body.

The woman was rushed to hospital in a stable condition, but the men were pronounced dead at the scene. Police could not immediately say whether the 33-year-old man may have been the shooter.

But the bloody night started hours earlier in East Flatbush.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the left arm outside a home around 5:30 p.m., police said.
