Teens may have had dispute with shooter before he shot them in Longwood
Two teens were shot near the Police Athletic League’s South Bronx Center in the Longwood section on Thursday.
The two teens were leaving a sporting event on Longwood Avenue just before 9 p.m. when the incident happened. Officials say it is likely the shooting was a result of a prior argument and that the teens may have been targeted.
A young man, wearing a mask, shot the 15-year-old in the head. He is in critical condition at Lincoln Hospital, officials said.
The 16-year-old, who was shot in the leg, is expected to survive.
A few days before this shooting, a 16-year-old was charged with attempted murder after an NYPD officer was shot in the arm.
On Wednesday, a 13-year-old was charged with shooting a 14-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy in Queens.
Just last month, a 14-year-old boy was shot and killed in Fordham Heights.
Police say the suspect in this Bronx shooting fled from the scene and no arrests have been made.
