2 in custody after shooting near Bronx school

Two men are in custody after gunfire erupted outside a Bronx elementary school this morning.



According to police, four shots were fired before 8 a.m. near Walton and Morris avenues, a few blocks away from P.S. 33. Students were being dropped off and going into the school at the time.



Police say one of the suspects tossed his weapon into an alleyway on school property. No injuries were reported.



Although none of the suspects entered the building, the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution. Many concerned parents came to the school to pick up their children.



Extra police officers will be stationed at the school for the next few days as a result of the incident.



Police are still looking for a third suspect who was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt. They say they will examine nearby surveillance video in hopes of identifying that person.



One of the suspects in custody, 21-year-old Freddy Trujillo, has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
