November 8, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot and killed at a Brooklyn Target store when a late-night dispute involving five men turned violent.

WNBC says the alleged gunman was being chased when the shooting occurred at around 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, just as the store was about to close.

Police also say one of the men in the group had a machete.

The incident occurred at City Point, an upscale shopping center on Albee Square in Downtown Brooklyn.

The shooter and three other men were taken into custody.

Target says its security team quickly notified law enforcement while keeping customers and workers safe. It kept the store closed on Thursday at investigators’ request and provided them with security footage.
