A young Crown Heights man was found murdered in his kitchen, police in New York said.

Brooklyn Police said that the 30-year-old man was found shot to death inside the kitchen of his fourth-floor apartment located on Prospect Place Monday morning.

The man was found by a neighbor shortly after 8:00 a.m., inside 926 Prospect Place. The 43-year-old man who discovered the body, said that he was about to take his son to school when neighbors told him that they heard gun shots from the apartment on the top floor.

The neighbor walked up to the fourth floor and began pounding on the door. That is when he realized that the door wasn’t locked.

He looked in and saw a gruesome scene. The victim was laying in the kitchen in a pool of blood. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police launched an investigation, but so far, no arrests have been made.
