A man who had been shot several times was found under the bed inside a Brooklyn apartment where police officers arrested three people over possession of drugs, according to the NYPD.

The officers responded to a report about shots fired on Hedgeman Avenue on Thursday night. When they arrived at the location, they reported finding two women and a man in an apartment with drug paraphernalia. The three were taken into custody with charges pending, but there was no sign of a firearm.

After an investigation, police received information on the location of the gun and they returned to the apartment. That's when they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds under a bed, police said.

The man, who has not been identified, was transported to Brookdale Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

An investigation is ongoing and no other information was immediately available.
