    What to Know

    • At least four people were shot at a candlelight vigil in Brooklyn early Monday, authorities said

    • There was no immediate word on whether anyone had been arrested

    At least four people were shot at a vigil on a Brooklyn street early Monday, authorities say.

    Videos from the Citizen app show a large police response and several emergency medical services vehicles on Buffalo Avenue in Crown Heights around 2 a.m. Police say the victims were two women and two men, between the ages of 24 to 49, with gunshot wounds to their chest, back and legs.

    All of the victims were hospitalized in critical but stable condition, authorities said. Mayor de Blasio tweeted the shooting erupted during a candlelight vigil, but it wasn't clear who that vigil was for, nor was there any word on an arrest.

    Police on Tuesday released surveillance footage of a group of running men who are wanted for questioning.

    The shooting occurred only two miles north of a Brownsville neighborhood where another shooting last month killed one person and injured 11 others. 

    Local leaders and advocacy groups have rallied against gun violence in the neighborhood as police continued their search for the suspects.
