EAST FLATBUSH -

An early morning shooting in East Flatbush left one man dead, and police searching for the gunman.

Police say the 39-year-old victim was rushed to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds throughout his body, but was pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital earlier this morning.

The incident happened inside 5325 Clarendon Road just before 2 a.m., the same building police say the 39-year-old victim lived in.

Neighbors say they heard a dispute between men inside the building before the shots rang out.

When first responders arrived at the location, they found the 39-year-old with several gunshot wounds. 

Police believe they are looking for one or two suspects.

 Anyone with information is asked to call police.
