ST. ALBANS, Queens — A 14-year-old victim was repeatedly shot in Queens on Monday evening, police said.

The teen was shot in the neck and torso at 166th Street and Marsden just after 5 p.m., an NYPD spokeswoman said.

An FDNY spokesperson said two people were rushed to a local hospital, but it’s not yet clear who the other victim is. Doctors operated on the teenage boy on Monday night.

He is expected to survive, a police source said.

The teen is believed to be gang associated and was targeted, according to the police source.

A pair of white sneakers were left behind in the street.

Neighborhood resident Hugh McPerson hear the shooting, but didn’t realize what it was.

” I hear like ‘bang bang,'” McPherson said. “I thought it was firecrackers.”

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz was at the scene.

A teenage girl was stabbed to death nearby in 2019.
