A shooting at a Memorial Day barbecue in East New York left a 42-year-old man dead and two others injured.
The incident occurred on the corner of Stanley Avenue and Hemlock Street around 7 p.m.
Police say there were about 200 people enjoying the barbecue before the shots were fired.
A 42-year-old man was shot in the head and neck. Authorities say he was rushed to the hospital, where he died of his injuries. Neighbors have identified him as Basheem Graham.
A 46-year-old man, who police say left in a private car, was found with a gunshot wound to his arm near Eldert Lane and Linden Boulevard. Another man, who News 12 is told is 34 years old, walked into Brookdale Hospital with a gunshot wound to his chest. They are both expected to survive.

Investigators say they found a firearm not far from where the shooting happened. They spent hours combing the crime scene for evidence and eventually towed a car from the street.
