13-year-old boy in critical condition after being shot on Staten Island

A teenage boy was rushed to the hospital after being shot in the head on Staten Island on Friday.

Police say the boy, 13, was shot just before 4 p.m. outside the Stapleton Houses located at Warren Street and Gordon Street.

He was taken to Richmond University Medical Center in critical condition.

Two suspects fled on foot, possibly into 75-77 Hill Street.

One was wearing a grey sweatshirt and both were wearing ski masks.

Reporters spoke to a man from a violence prevention program who knew the victim.

He said the teen is an 8th grader who attends the Eagle Academy charter school, right where the shooting took place.

The man described the teen as an “energetic kid” not known for getting into trouble.

It’s not yet clear what led to the shooting.
