A teenager enjoying his first day of spring recess got shot in the back of the head while fleeing a gunman who opened fire along a busy Brooklyn street on Monday, cops said.
The NY Post reports:
Gama Droiville, 13, was walking with his aunt on Flatbush Avenue near Beverly Road around noon when the shooter started spraying bullets at a man who was getting out of a taxicab, sources said.
Gama and the aunt both tried to run away, but a stray round struck the boy from behind.
He was taken to Kings County Hospital in serious condition, but has since been stabilized and is expected to survive, sources said.
The intended target, an unidentified 24-year-old man, was hit once in the leg and limped into the same hospital for treatment, sources said.
He was being interviewed by detectives, who hadn’t yet determined a motive.
The shooter, described as a black man in his 20s wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt, escaped the scene.
At least nine shell casings littered the ground, and witnesses said they were terrified by the broad-daylight shooting.
