QUEENS (PIX11) — A 14-year-old boy was found fatally shot in the back in Queens Tuesday morning, police said.

Authorities discovered the victim face down in the driveway of an Arverne home on Beach 67th Street at around 7:15 a.m. with a gunshot wound to his lower back, according to an NYPD spokeswoman. First responders pronounced him dead at the scene, police said.

Officials identified the victim as Shawn Frye. The teen was from Paterson, New Jersey. It’s unclear why he was in Queens.

Police said it is unclear if the teen was shot in the driveway or somewhere else. Police are also investigating if the incident is connected to a drive-by shooting on Beach 68th Street on Monday night, officials said. The drive-by shooting from Monday night happened at around 9:30 p.m. in front of a home on Beach 68th Street, where Lalinee Ramsamooj lives with her husband and daughters.

“When I realized the bullet was in the house, I called 911,” Ramsamooj said.

They heard five or six gunshots fire off with bullets going through their fence, front door, window, and a china cabinet inside the home. Ramsamooj and her husband were sitting in the living watching television and were luckily untouched by the gunfire, but an 18-year-old male on the street was struck in the face and hand. He was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.
