NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Five people were shot in the vicinity of a NYCHA complex in Canarsie, Brooklyn on Monday, all of whom were expected to survive, the NYPD said. 

The five people were shot in the vicinity of the Bay View Houses just after 6:00 p.m. on Monday, police said. 

At approximately 6:19 p.m., officials said a 23-year-old woman was shot four times in the chest at 1571 Remsen Ave.

At 6:31 p.m., three 19-year-old men were shot at 2105 Rockaway Parkway.
