16-Year-Old Fatally Shot in the Face on Delancey Street Last Night
A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed on Delancey Street last night, near the on-ramp to the Williamsburg Bridge, cops said.
The teenager was shot in the face near the corner of Suffolk at about 8:30pm. Right at the foot of Essex Crossing. First responders rushed the boy, who was unconscious, to Bellevue Hospital for treatment, but could not be saved.
It’s unclear at the moment what led to the shooting. However, cops reportedly found six shell casings at the scene.
Shortly after the incident, a 24-year-old man involved in the same shooting walked himself to Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hip. The Daily News reports that he was transferred to an uptown hospital where he is expected to survive.
The investigation is ongoing, as police currently seek three men who fled north on Essex Street in the immediate aftermath.
