Police: 2 teens shot on East 166th Street

Two teenagers were shot Tuesday night at Findlay Avenue and East 166th Street, police say.



Officials say the shooting occurred just before 8 p.m.



A close friend of the victims tells News 12 one is 18 years old and the other is 19 years old.



He says they were sitting in front of an apartment building with a few other people when a man suddenly came running up to them, firing off shots and striking them both.



He says the gunman ran off and dropped his gun halfway down the block before getting away.



News 12 is told both victims were rushed to Lincoln Medical Center and are expected to be OK.
