Shot Dead on Amsterdam Avenue (Updated)
Big shooting at 492 Amsterdam Avenue, Apartment 3-S: Four men believed dead. Location is between West 83rd and 84th Streets, same builiding as Darryl's Boutique.
911 was called at about 2 p.m. by a woman saying her father and brother had been killed. Three bodies were found in the apartment, one in the back yard. Daily News says a woman was injured in the fracas. More as it develops.
Update: The three men found dead inside came from three generations of the same family -- grandfather, father, and son. The dispute that led to the bloodbath is thought to be drug related. The man dead in the back so far looks to be the gunman, perhaps killed in a fall while trying to escape.
Update 2: Graham Rayman has a full recap here.
