Man Killed In Brooklyn Triple Shooting

BROOKLYN — Three people were shot — one fatally — in a Crown Heights building late Sunday, police said.

Verdell Walker, 23, was inside of 1912 Pacific St. with two unidentified people when shots rang out just before 11 p.m., police said.

Walker was hit in the chest and rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, police said.

A 22-year-old woman took a bullet to the chest, and a 20-year-old man was shot several times in the body, police added.

Both victims were taken to Kings County Hospital, police said. The woman remained in critical condition, cops noted, while the male victim was listed in stable condition.

Police were looking into what sparked the shooting. No one has been arrested.

A police source said Walker had run-ins with the law, though it was unclear if that criminal history was linked to Sunday's shooting. Walker has 11 prior arrests in the city including charges for robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and drugs, the source added.

The other two victims also have arrest records, the source added.
