NEW YORK (AP) - A man is dead after police say a gunman opened fire on him and a woman as they were sitting in a double-parked sport utility vehicle outside a Brooklyn apartment.

The New York Police Department says the man and woman were sitting in an SUV in Bedford-Stuyvesant when a man came up to them and started firing just before 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say 33-year-old Ernest Brown was shot in the head and torso. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Police say a 22-year-old woman taken to Kings County Hospital is in stable condition.

No arrests have been made.
