HARLEM, Manhattan — An Uber driver has died after being shot while in his car in Harlem Saturday night, police said Wednesday.

Kuldip Singh, 21, of Queens, sustained a gunshot wound to the head after an unidentified gunman opened fire. A 15-year-old boy was also shot in the stomach.

Even days after the shooting, the details remain unclear: police aren’t sure who the gunman was shooting at, nor are the circumstances surrounding the incident known.

The NYPD said early Monday that the teen’s injuries had become life-threatening. He was in police custody, as he was seen on video tossing a gun — though police don’t believe he fired any shots.
