A 28-year-old woman was killed outside a Brooklyn party venue early Sunday in a triple shooting that also injured two men, according to police sources.

The slain victim — whose name has yet to be publicly released — was blasted once in the stomach around 6:15 a.m. outside the Celebration Events & Party Hall on Atlantic Avenue in Cypress Hills, sources said.

She was raced by ambulance to Jamaica Hospital but pronounced dead on arrival just before 7 a.m., according to the sources.

A 26-year-old man was also shot in the body and taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull by private means during the crime. He is expected to survive, sources said.

A 36-year-old man was also shot, getting hit in the right calf and also slashed in the face and hip during the attack, the sources said. He was taken to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center and is also expected to survive.

Detectives were seen early Sunday going into the small party venue, which is open 24 hours. It was not immediately clear what event was happening at the time of the shooting.

Officers were canvassing for video of the attack, and there were no immediate descriptions of the attacker or attackers, sources said.
