Shootout outside Bronx elementary school amid NYC youth gun violence crisis

As youth gun violence continues to plague the city, the NYPD released shocking new video of gunfire erupting right outside of a Bronx elementary school earlier in October. Police said if school had let out just a bit earlier, children would have been caught in the crossfire of the shootout. Authorities said it happened around 2:50 p.m. back on Oct. 5, just outside the Boys Prep Bronx Elementary School on East 151st Street in the Concourse section. At the corner of East 150th Street and Cedar Lane, two groups of unidentified individuals, estimated by cops to be males in their late teens or early 20s, exchanged gunfire toward each other, just feet away from one of the school’s entrances, the NYPD said. There was a group of three, including one shooter, and another group of two, one of which was the other gunman, according to police. Luckily, there were no injuries reported in connection with the gunfire. No arrests had been made, as of Thursday morning. The footage comes as the city deals with an ongoing trend of gun violence among children and teens. Separately, just a day ago, the NYPD said three public school students were caught bringing firearms to school, two in the Bronx and one in Brooklyn. First, a gun was found in a 15-year-old boy’s backpack at Mott Haven High, prompting a lockdown, authorities said. Then, cops said an 18-year-old was also found with a gun in his bag at Stevenson High School, discovered when his bag went through an X-Ray machine. A few hours later in Brooklyn, a 17-year-old boy brought a loaded gun to school at Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School, police said.
