Two people, including a teenager, are now facing charges in the shooting of two high schoolers Tuesday afternoon in Sunset Park.
A 16-year-old now faces a charge of criminal possession of a weapon. Police say the teen was with Ousman Diallo, 21, who is facing the same charge as well as an additional charge for attempted murder.
The victims are two 18-year-old males, and both are expected to be OK. Officials say the teens were shot on the corner of 36th Street and Fourth Avenue, directly across from P371K and outside of a deli. Sources say the two teenagers are students at P371K.
The two teens were both shot in the shoulder and are in the hospital where they are expected to be OK.
It is still unclear what led up to those shots being fired.
