Two people are dead and two were injured in two early morning shootings along the West Indian Day Parade route in Brooklyn.

Police say two women and a man were shot at Empire Boulevard and Flatbush Avenue during J'Ouvert festivities in Prospect Lefferts Gardens just before 4 a.m. Monday morning. All three were taken to Kings County Hospital, where the man was pronounced dead. The two women are listed in stable condition.

Fifteen minutes later, a 22-year-old woman was shot in the face and killed at Empire Boulevard and Washington Avenue. Her identification is being withheld until her family can be notified.

Last year, Carey Gabay, a former aide to Governor Cuomo, was shot and killed while leaving J'Ouvert. Three men have been charged with murder in his death and a fourth was arrested this month.
