17-year-old shot in arm in NYC, police say

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the arm in the Bronx late last week, police said.

The teenage victim was walking on Findlay Avenue near East 167th Street in Morrisania around 7pm on May 20 when three young men approached him, police said late Wednesday – as they released surveillance photos of the suspects.

One of the suspects then displayed a gun and opened fire – hitting him in the shoulder, authorities said.

The victim was taken to Lincoln Medical Center, where his condition is stable.

The circumstances leading to the violence were unknown as of Thursday.

An uninvolved vehicle was also damaged by the shots, police said.

Cops released photos of the trio – who fled after the shooting and appear to be teenagers themselves.

Friday’s incident came two days before a 16-year-old boy was shot dead in Brooklyn, police officers said.

The victim was blasted in the legs and lower back on Albany Avenue near Glenwood Road in East Flatbush around 10:50 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

One of the suspects suspected in the shooting.
One of the young men suspected of the shooting.

He reported hearing gunshots and feeling pain and was taken to Kings County Hospital Center, where his condition was stable.

Also over the weekend, a 17-year-old girl was shot in the face at a Bronx party around 1 a.m. Sunday, police officers said.

The girl was at 500 Trinity Avenue when a person shot into the crowd. The bullet went through her right temple and came out through her left nostril, police officers said.

She was taken to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition, police said.
