NEW YORK — One person was killed and several others injured after gunfire erupted on the boardwalk at Coney Island in New York City.

They were all taken to a local hospital where they remained stable.

Passers-by on the promenade told sister station WABC in New York that they heard several shots.

“It was like, I don’t know, I heard about seven shots, one after the other,” said a witness. “It was very fast. I thought someone was probably having some kind of celebration. However, I did not see any fireworks. So I thought it might be gunfire, but I wish it was the fireworks.”

There are still so many questions about what led to the shooting. Were the victims the intended targets or were they shot at random?

So far there have been no arrests. The investigations are ongoing.
