Five young men shot at Bronx graduation party, video shows victim screaming ‘I got hit!’
Five young men were struck and wounded in a drive-by shooting at a Bronx graduation party early Friday, police said.
The gunfire erupted on Zerega Ave. near Watson Ave. in Unionport around 1 a.m.
Police said private security had been hired for a graduation party there, and the suspects were either escorted from the party or denied access.
A short time later, at least one person opened fire at the crowd from the sunroof of a passing dark-colored sedan.
Surveillance video shared with the Daily News shows several people screaming and running down the street after a gunshot is heard in the distance.
A man in a brown jacket and blue jeans grabs his side and starts limping back toward his friends, the two-minute clip shows.
“I got hit yo! I got hit, I got hit!” he screams.
An NYPD cruiser rolls by the shooting scene then returns a few moments later, the clip shows.
A 16-year-old teen was struck in the chest. Three others — ages 17, 20 and 21 — were hit in the leg. A 19-year-old man was shot in the hip, police said.
All the victims were rushed to Jacobi Medical Center and were in stable condition.
The suspects are still being sought.
