A man was killed and at leave five other people were injured in the latest incident of gun violence in New York City late Wednesday.

The NYPD says a white sedan pulled up close to the group of victims who were outside at 285 Hawthorne Street, just a few blocks from Brooklyn's Prospect Park, before 10:30 p.m. and someone inside opened fire, striking six people.

One man, 23, was shot in the chest and died after he was transported to the hospital. Three others, a 26-year-old man and a 29-year-old man and woman, were shot in the leg. A 28-year-old man was grazed by a bullet in his back, and a 27-year-old man was shot in the groin, according to police.

No arrests have been made and police did not provide other details.

An investigation is ongoing.

In total there were six shooting incidents with 11 victims in New York City Wednesday, the NYPD said. Year-to-date, shooting incidents are up 94 percent and the number of victims is up 101 percent.

A man has died after an armed suspect chased him into a Brooklyn deli and shot him several times, police said. NBC New York's Checkey Beckford reports.

In another fatal shooting in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon, a man was chased into a deli on Chauncy Street and Malcolm X Boulevard by an armed suspect who shot him several times.

One witness who works across the street told NBC New York there were a woman and toddler inside the store at the time but no one else was harmed. Police say they're still searching for the gunman.

Hours later, two people were shot early Friday morning near the same area, according to the NYPD. A 30-year-old man was shot twice in the right torso and a 23-year-old woman was shot once in the shoulder following some sort of dispute.

No arrests have been made in the shooting.
