Investigators believe the assailants fired multiple shots from a gray SUV, but it is currently unknown if the minors are targeted victims of the shooting, which occurred at the Sir John Apartments on Madrid Street.

A 16-year-old male died at the hospital, while a 14-year-old female is reportedly in critical condition.
