It happened in front of 73 Highland Ave. shortly before 2 a.m. Investigators say the young victim was in front of a building with a group of people when a vehicle drove up and two suspects allegedly each fired a single shot in their direction.

The boy suffered a single gunshot wound to the neck. He was hospitalized in serious but stable condition, and was undergoing surgery.
