A 15-year-old boy was critically injured and another teen was wounded when they were struck by bullets in a shooting outside of a Police Athletic League recreation center in the Bronx on Thursday night, cops said.
The 15-year-old was shot in the head and a 16-year-old victim was hit in the leg after gunfire erupted outside the facility on Longwood Avenue near Fox Street around 8:50 p.m., according to police.
Both teens were taken to nearby hospitals, authorities said.
They were among a crowd of people leaving the recreation center when they were shot, sources said.
Another group was passing by around the time of the shooting, though it’s unclear if that’s where the gunfire came from.
Thursday’s gun violence follows another shooting involving teens a day earlier.
On Wednesday, a 13-year-old boy allegedly shot a 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy outside Campus Magnet HS in Cambria Heights.
The wounded teens from the first shooting were expected to recover and the 13-year-old alleged gunman was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
