Teenager shot dead near New York playground, NYPD says

A 14-year-old boy was shot in the leg near a playground in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, police said Tuesday.

The teenager was very uncooperative but at least told police he was playing near Lincoln Road Playground at Ocean Avenue and East Lake Drive around 7:40 p.m. Monday when he “felt in severe pain and passed out”, said a police source.

The next thing the teenager remembered was being dragged from a car by his friend, the source said.
