Police in Brooklyn went to check on a woman at the request of her family and discovered the worst.

54-year-old Gwendolyn Brown's family hadn't heard from her in a few days and became worried.

Police entered Brown's apartment on Pennsylvania Avenue in East New York at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

They found her laying face up on her bed with a gunshot wound to her head.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say that they did not recover a gun at the scene and they also say robbery does not appear to be the motive.

So far, there are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
