A 13-year-old boy was charged Thursday with allegedly striking two other teenagers when he opened fire during a melee near a Queens high school.
The teen, whose name was not released because he is a minor, was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and reckless endangerment in connection with the Wednesday shooting that injured a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy outside Campus Magnet High School in Cambria Heights.
The girl was hit in the ankle and the boy in the leg during the mayhem that ensued at a bus stop outside the school around 4:50 p.m., according to cops.
The victims, all of whom were students at the time, were taken to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
According to police, the young shooter dropped a gun as he attempted to flee the scene. Cops were later able to recover the weapon.
It’s unclear whether either victim was targeted, though police said both of them “weren’t active participants in the melee,” authorities said.
