On the morning of Friday, January 20, at around 10:20 a.m., a teenager was shot just a few blocks from the 100th Precinct.
Officers responded to the call right away, reporting to Beach 91st and Rockaway Beach Boulevard. When police arrived at the scene, they found a 16-year-old male victim with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder.
Sources say the shooting stemmed from a fight on a Q52 MTA bus. The bus carrying 20 passengers was struck by a bullet during the shooting and a bullet hole could be seen in one of the windows. No passengers were injured. The young victim was expected to survive.
The officers were able to quickly apprehend a suspect and recovered a firearm at the scene. Charges are pending. There are no other perpetrators. A span of blocks from Beach 90th to Beach 94th was closed off for a few hours on Friday as an investigation took place.
