A 16-year-old girl was killed and two other teens were wounded in a triple shooting in broad daylight in the Melrose section of the South Bronx, Friday afternoon, police say.
Gunshots rang out around 1:45 pm at the intersection of Saint Ann’s Avenue and East 156th Street next to University Heights Secondary School, police said. Two 16-year-old girls were shot, one in the leg and one in the torso, and a 17-year-old boy was hit in the buttocks, according to police officials.
First responders rushed all three to Lincoln Medical Center, where the girl who’d been struck in the torso was pronounced dead. Both other victims were expected to survive the attack. Police said no arrests have been made as of Friday afternoon and that the investigation was ongoing.
