Authorities say Timothy Oyebola was gunned down near Lew Wallace School at Sutter Avenue and Chester Street just before 4 p.m. Friday.

“He was a really, really good kid. This is a very unfortunate act. It’s a strong possibility that he was in unintended target of this bullet,” NYPD Deputy Chief Michael Kemper said Friday evening.

The shooting took place right as school was letting out and there were other people in the park. Police say one of the students may have been the intended target of the gunman, but a motive has not been determined. Authorities have not released a description on the suspect or suspects they’re looking for.
