A teenager was shot and killed in Staten Island after getting into a dispute with others, police said.

Law enforcement got a call after 7 p.m. Monday about an assault on Castleton Avenue in West Brighton, police said. First responders found a 16-year-old with a gunshot wound in the abdomen, according to police, and was rushed to nearby Richmond University Medical Center.

The victim was later identified as Shane Kelly. He later died at the hospital.

Police believe the shooting appears to have stemmed from a dispute that Kelly, who officials said lived in the area, had with others.

The suspect is still on the run, police said. The investigation is ongoing.
