Police: 14-year-old boy shot in the leg in Kingsbridge

Posted: Updated:

A shooting in Kingsbridge Heights left a 14-year-old boy injured Thursday evening.

It is unclear how many shots were fired in total, but surveillance video captured the entire incident.

Police tell News 12 that the 14-year-old boy is being very uncooperative and that he is a known gang member. They say the incident could possibly be gang-related.

Police say the boy somehow made it to Creston Avenue and was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital.

The distance another bullet traveled is putting some who work and live nearby in shock. A bullet hole was found in a window at a laundromat, then traveled several feet and hit a window of a pizzeria.

Police say he is expected to be OK.
