Authorities say a gunman took his own life after critically wounding two others in a shooting incident in Brooklyn Monday morning.

The shooting happened in an iron factory on 13th Street between Hamilton Place and Second Avenue in Gowanus at around 11:15 a.m.

The alleged gunman barricaded himself in a tool room in the building after the shooting, according to authorities.

Authorities say negotiators tried to speak with him, but the alleged gunman ultimately died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Witnesses who were inside the building told NY1 that the alleged gunman walked into the building and asked for work.

According to witnesses, the man was directed upstairs to speak with management, but he instead took out his gun and started firing.

Witnesses inside the building told NY1 that he fired at least five shots.

Both victims were taken to Lutheran Hospital and are expected to survive.

NY1 is keeping a close eye on the situation and will bring you more information as it becomes available.
