Wrong place at the wrong time’: Innocent Bronx teen killed by gunman fleeing shooting
A 16-year-old boy who was in the path of a fleeing gunman was fatally shot in the hallway of his Bronx building moments after the killer wounded two young men, police said Tuesday.
The chaos started around 11:45 p.m. Monday on the ninth floor of an apartment building on Webster Ave. near W. Gun Hill Road in Norwood.
Four visitors were about to enter an apartment where a house party was being planned when the gunman emerged from the stairs and fired down the hall.
A 19-year-old man was hit in the upper body and a 22-year-old man was shot in the ankle. The other two guests, a man and a woman, were not injured.
While residents were hiding behind their doors, the attacker fled and encountered a teenager who lives in the building.
“He goes downstairs and then he finds our 16-year-old victim one floor down and shoots him once in the neck,” said NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison. “We believe [the victim] was unfortunately in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Doctors took the bleeding teenager to Jacobi Medical Center, where he died. His name was not immediately mentioned.
“It looked like they were filming in my apartment,” a ninth-floor resident told the Daily News. “It was crazy and loud… You hear one shot and then like eight more – Bam! Bam! Bam! I am still shaking. It was so close. ”

The two wounded fled with their two friends and headed to Montefiore Hospital. Doctors transferred them to Jacobi Medical Center, where they are in stable condition.
Harrison said it might be connected to warring gangs.
It was not immediately clear what caused the bloodshed, although Harrison said it could be related to gangs at war. The initial shooting on the ninth floor was captured on video, sources said.
“It’s been a problem,” Harrison said. “Much of the gang violence leads to unintentional people being beaten.”

Residents on the eighth floor recalled opening their doors to see the dying teenager. The bullet holes were visible in the walls and ceiling of the building’s ninth floor.
“No one was helping him. Nobody left their apartments, ”said a woman who lives on the eighth floor. “I was the only one who helped. I saw it and called the police.

“I ran to my room with my son and didn’t open the door because I still didn’t know if he was safe. .. There had been so many shots that I did not know if there was still an active shooter who was coming to finish off the boy “.
During the first 11 days of the new year, the city has witnessed 10 homicides, compared to six during the same period last year.
According to the ninth-floor resident, the party’s apartment was an anomaly in a floor mostly occupied by families. And an eighth-floor resident blamed the building management for failing to maintain security.
“Such bad things are happening,” he said. “Lately, there are people constantly hanging around the stairs, and even people sleeping on the stairs.”
