CBS2’s Tony Aiello reports there are preliminary concerns it may have been a gang-related shooting.

The public is being asked to avoid the area.

The shooting happened just around the corner from where a 6-year-old boy was shot in the chest in April. He survived.

Mayor Mike Spano says the gun violence seen in New York and all across the country is a huge concern. He’s going to have heightened police patrols in the neighborhood for the next couple of days.
