Student Shot Walking Home From Summer School


A Queens teenager walking home from summer school Thursday was shot in the leg, police said.

The incident occurred in the Far Rockaway section of Queens as the victim was walking from P.S. 43 on Beach 29th Street. He was rushed to Jamaica Medical Center in stable condition.

Other students -- who were also walking home -- heard the shots and immediately returned to the school, which was temporarily put on lock down.

So far, police have no identified a suspect or a motive in the shooting.
