Police are investigating a triple shooting that left a 23-year-old woman dead and a 13-year-old boy injured in Brooklyn.

Police responded to a 911 call just before midnight reporting a man shot at Weirfield Street and Bushwick Avenue in Bushwick.

When they arrived they found the child shot in the left arm, the woman shot in the back and another man, 21, shot in the back. The boy and the man were in stable condition and the woman was pronounced dead at the hospital.

One of the people shot is believed to be the targeted by the shooter.

The city has been on edge since Labor Day, a bloody holiday weekend during which at least 67 people were hit by gunfire in shootings throughout the city.
