Police in New York have arrested a man in connection with a weekend shooting at a Brooklyn house party that left nine people hospitalized.

Tyrone Brown, 24, was charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment, police said Tuesday.

The shooting started early Sunday in the East Flatbush neighborhood, police said. A neighbor told CNN affiliate WCBS that she heard gunshots.

Four men and five women, all younger than 45, were injured and taken to four hospitals.

The injuries were not life-threatening, New York Police Department Officer Sophia Tassy-Mason said.

The neighborhood at East 52nd Street is a mix of residential and commercial buildings, she said. According to NYPD statistics, there have been 21 shooting incidents reported in the area this year.
