3 men, 1-year-old girl fatally shot in Brooklyn apartment

Four people, including one young child, were found shot dead in Brooklyn Wednesday morning, the police said.

A TODDLER is among four family members shot dead in a gun rampage at a NY apartment.

Police said that a woman, believed to be the grandmother of the child came to the apartment to babysit, when she made the horrifying discovery.




As WABC reports, 27-year-old Terrance Briggs; his daughter, 1-year-old Layla Briggs; his stepfather, 57-year-old Lloyd Drain Jr.; and 15-year-old Lloyd Drain III, were found inside the home by a relative shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday. It seems all the deceased are related, either by blood or by marriage, he said. There were all residents of the apartment, the NYPD said. Investigators are interviewing witnesses, family members, and reviewing video surveillance in the early hours of the tragedy.

Law enforcement sources told the New York Daily News that there was no sign of forced entry into the fourth-floor apartment and that they suspect the deaths might be a triple murder-suicide. "In the nature of this business, we deal with death and tragic scenes, but when it involves an infant, it's extremely tough". We will update this story with additional information as it becomes available.
