NEW YORK — The Latest on the apparent shooting deaths of four people, including a 1-year-old girl, in Brooklyn (all times local):

2:15 p.m.

The bodies of four apparent shooting victims, including a 1-year-old girl, were found in a Brooklyn apartment just hours before students throughout New York City participated in walkouts to protest gun violence.

Police have been trying to determine whether the deaths Wednesday were three homicides and a suicide.

Deputy Chief Michael Kemper says investigators are still "working very hard" to find a motive.

A relative found the bodies about 5 a.m. at a high-rise complex, the Riverdale Osborne Towers.

The other victims were a 57-year-old man, a 27-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy.

Kemper says it appears all the victims were related.

A relative found their bodies around 5 a.m. Wednesday at a high-rise complex, the Riverdale Osborne Towers.

The other victims were a male apparently in his late teens, a man apparently in his 50s, and a man apparently in his late 20s.
