Three people were shot near Williamsburg Charter High School, according to the NYPD. 
The shooting took place just before 2:15 p.m. on Varet Street outside of the school, according to the FDNY. Three victims were transported to Elmhurst Hospital, and the NYPD says that they are all in stable condition.
Police say a 15-year-old girl was shot in the back, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the thigh, and a 37-year-old man was grazed in the neck by a gunshot. All three victims were conscious at the time they were taken to the hospital.  
At this time, police sources say that they are looking for a school-age black male who was wearing black Adidas pants with a white stripe and a blue jacket. 
For parent Elizabeth Craberra, a routine afternoon pickup outside of the school turned into a horrible experience for her and her son.
"Enough is happening for them to go through this," said Craberra. "I had to drag my son out of the school right now in tears. Kids don't need to go through this stress.
No arrests have been made.
