NEW YORK—Authorities say two gunmen opened fire on a crowded boardwalk at a New York City beach, killing one woman and wounding four other people.
Police spokesman Paul Browne says the shootings happened during an altercation late Thursday afternoon on the Brighton Beach boardwalk.
Browne did not know if the victims were intended targets or bystanders. He says police are questioning some people, but declined to say whether they were potential suspects.
The woman who died has not been identified. She died at Coney Island Hospital, where another male victim is in critical condition. The other three were taken to Lutheran Hospital.
No arrests have been made. The shooting is under investigation.
