One person is dead and two are injured after a triple shooting in Williamsburg on Thursday afternoon.

Police were dispatched to the building at 666 Broadway, near the intersection 0f Cook Street and Manhattan Avenue, at 3:19 pm on June 3 after receiving a 911 call from the building. Officers found a man lying unconscious with a gunshot wound to the head in the hallway outside Apartment 9, and inside the apartment found a 29-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man who had been shot in the arm and torso, respectively.

The building was cordoned shortly after police arrived. The man in the hallway was pronounced dead at the scene, while the wounded man and woman were taken to Elmhurst Hospital.

Cops said that it was unclear what the motive for the shooting was, and no one has been arrested in connection with the incident.
