A 15-year-old boy was shot Thursday, December 21 outside of a NYCHA building on the Upper West Side.

The incident took place at about 7:20 p.m. outside of 217 West 62nd Street, which is part of the Amsterdam Houses.

Police say that “Upon arrival, officers observed a 15-year-old male with a gunshot wound to his lower left torso and he also suffered one graze wound to the chest.”


EMS transported him to New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in stable condition.

“Sometimes shootings happen, but it’s a real quiet neighborhood,”a building tenant named Alex told the NY Daily News. “It’s surprising because this is nicer compared to some areas.”

Video shared on Citizen shows police cars and reporters arriving to the scene.

On Wednesday, January 3, police provided an update with images of three suspects wanted in connection with the incident.

“One of the individuals displayed firearm and discharged it at the victim, striking the victim in the shoulder and torso. The individuals then fled the scene in an unknown direction,” NYPD officials wrote.
