NYPD: 14-year-old boy fatally shot overnight in Tremont
Police say a 14-year-old boy was killed in a late-night shooting Wednesday in Tremont.
The NYPD says officers responded to 2249 Morris Ave. around 11 p.m. for a 911 call of a male shot.
Police found the 14-year-old with a gunshot wound to the torso. He was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police believe the teenager was deliberately gunned down.
Surveillance shows two young men walking down Morris Avenue then appear to duck behind a vehicle. Minutes later, the pair is seen running away with one of them seen carrying a gun in his hand.
Bronx residents say the neighborhood had turned into a turf war and that teens from other neighborhoods are trying to mark their territory through violence.
There are no arrests at this time, officers say.
