NYPD: 1 Dead, 5 Hurt in Pair of Memorial Day Shootings at Brooklyn Parks

Six people were shot in a pair of unrelated bouts of gunfire at parks in Brooklyn on Monday night, and one died, according to authorities.

The NYPD says the first shots rang out at some sort of party at a park on Stanley Avenue and Hemlock Street in East New York just before 7 p.m. 

Police say someone opened fire on the group. Three men -- ages 34, 42 and 46 -- were all hit and ultimately treated at Brookdale Hospital. The 42-year-old man died at the hospital. The other two were in stable condition Tuesday morning with arm and chest wounds.  

The second shooting was reported at St. Andrews Park on Atlantic Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 8:45 p.m. A 16-year-old boy and two 19-year-old men were hit in that incident and are expected to survive their injuries. 

Authorities say they're looking for two gunmen in the Bedford-Stuyvesant shooting; no description of the shooter in the East New York incident was immediately available.
