A chaotic chain of gunfire.

In East New York early Sunday morning, five men were shot outside a banquet hall in a chaotic chain of gunfire that left one dead and another wounded by a police sergeant's bullet, police said.

It happened around 1 a.m. on Atlantic Avenue in East New York.

Police said the havoc began when one man, whose age wasn't known, shot three others, killing one, on Atlantic Avenue near the East New York neighborhood.

Then the gunman was shot himself by a second shooter who ran off with an accomplice, police said.

Two officers and a sergeant heard the gunfire and chased the second gunman, who was still armed, down Atlantic Avenue before the sergeant shot him while endeavoring to arrest him, police said.

A 21-year-old man, believed to be a shooter, was also shot in the leg as officers placed him under arrest.

Of the other wounded men, one, whose age wasn't known, was in critical condition with three gunshot wounds to the torso.

FDNY EMS Paramedics said the wounds to the other two, aged 20 and 17,appeared life-threatening.
