The shooter who went on a rampage at a Brooklyn gambling den, taking four lives this weekend, was trying to rob back his losses, investigators believe.
The unnamed suspect unleashed a fusillade of bullets after becoming enraged over a card game at the Triple A Aces Club on Utica Ave. near Dean St. in Crown Heights around 7 a.m. Saturday, police sources said.
“I woke up and couldn’t believe it,” Eddie Baldwin, 35, the brother of slain man Terrance Bishop, told the Daily News. “The detectives told us a guy at the club was cheated and wanted his money back.”
Bishop, 36, John Thomas, 32, and Dominick Wimbush, 47, all of Bedford-Stuyvesant, along with Chester Goode, 37, of Canarsie were pronounced dead at the scene. Dashawn Kearse, 38, escaped the carnage with a gunshot wound to his hand.
A suspect believed to be connected with the quadruple homicide was released from custody without being charged Saturday.
