The incident occurred at the basketball courts in Riverbank State Park. The teenager was rushed to Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital but succumbed to his injuries. In another incident, a 5-year-old girl was critically wounded while riding in a car with her family on East 214th Street. The shooting was linked to a previous homicide, and the girl is currently recovering at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore.

During a Sunday briefing outside the hospital, the police assured the public that there would be closure in the case of the 5-year-old girl’s shooting.

The recent shootings in the Bronx have raised concerns about public safety. Just a week prior, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the back near the Pearly Gates playground. Although the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening, the suspects remain at large. The police have released surveillance footage to aid in their investigation but have yet to make any arrests.

These incidents have had a significant impact on the Bronx community, leaving residents worried about their safety. The shootings have targeted innocent bystanders, including children, and have occurred during public gatherings and vigils.
