NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Newburgh are investigating a shooting that left one person dead and three others injured.

It happened early Sunday morning at 253 South William Street. The building houses a church and a basement social club that had been rented out for a Valentine’s Day party.

Police say four people sustained gunshot wounds. One of the victims, identified as 24-year-old Gevontay Owens-Grant, of Newburgh, was pronounced dead at St. Luke’s Hospital.

It wasn’t clear what sparked the shooting, but police say the church was not connected to the incident.

No other information was immediately available.
