The two victims were playing at a court by Bronx Regional High School around 11.30pm Monday night when a car drove by.

A man inside the vehicle yelled at them and waved a gun before shooting several times.

The girl was struck in the left arm and suffered a graze wound to her torso while the boy had a bullet lodged in his jaw.

Both were taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition.

“I only heard one shot, and my chin started hurting, and I started bleeding from my house and my nose… I was bleeding a lot,” the teen victim Denzel Gamboa told the New York Post.

Gamboa said the bullet traveled through his chin toward his eye sockets where it remains lodged.

Police have not identified a motive at this time.
