Bronx

WILLIAMSBRIDGE, the Bronx — Shooters inside an SUV opened fire in the Bronx on Wednesday evening, wounding four people, including a teen who was shot in the head, officials said.

A black SUV pulled up on Burke Avenue near Barnes Avenue around 5 p.m., police said. Two people in the SUV opened fired, striking an 18-year-old in the head and sending him to the hospital.

The teen was initially listed in critical condition but his condition was upgraded early Thursday morning to “stable,” according to police.

A 15-year-old boy, a 26-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman were also shot. At least two of them were unintended targets, according to police.

None of the victims have criminal records that might connect them to this shooting, officials said.

The SUV driver made a U-turn after the shooting and drove off.

Detectives on the scene found at least eight bullet casings.

Family at the scene said the 18-year-old victim was a smart and quiet kid. They said he’s great with computers. They don’t believe he had anything to do with this shooting.

Police have not yet shared additional information on the shooters.
