NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a man has been killed and a woman injured after a shooting inside an apartment.

The New York Police Department says officers responded to a 911 call shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday that two people had been shot inside an apartment on East 102nd Street in Manhattan.

They found a 27-year-old man with a wound to his abdomen and a 26-year-old woman who had been shot in her leg.

The man, identified as Damian Coleman, was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The woman was hospitalized in stable condition.

Authorities believe the shooter is someone who knew the man, but no arrests have been made.

An investigation is ongoing.
