One man is dead after being shot multiple times in Flatbush Wednesday, and a person is in custody, police say.

The incident happened on the corner of Ocean and Church avenues in Flatbush around 12 a.m.

Justin Hackley, 20, was shot multiple times and transported to Kings County Hospital by a private vehicle.

Police say Hackley later died at the hospital.

Officials took at least one person into custody at the scene because they say he tossed a knife underneath a car when approached by officers.
