A teen was shot as they stood in front of an apartment building in the Bronx, officials said.
The 14-year-old was outside the building at 2625 Jerome Ave. when he was shot in the leg, police said. He then ran to a building right across from St. James Park in Fordham Manor, according to police.
Shots rang out just before 3 p.m., police said. The victim was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital in serious but stable condition, according to police.
Cops were questioning two males, whose ages were not released, in connection to the shooting, but no arrests have been made.
Police believe the shooting was gang-related.
The shooting comes just days after two other teens were shot in Queens. A 14-year-old boy was shot and killed at a basketball court in Jamaica on Saturday, and a 16-year-old girl was shot in the shoulder as she was leaving school on Monday. She is expected to recover, and a teenager has been arrested in her shooting.
Police have given no indication the shootings are connected at this time, however.
An investigation is ongoing.
