A Cambria Heights teenager was killed and another teen was wounded in a shooting on a South Jamaica street Sunday afternoon, police said.

Authorities said they were called to the shooting scene in front of 143-07 Lakewood Ave. at 3:20 p.m.

Emergency responders then brought 17-year-old Khalil Bowlin, who was shot in the torso, to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the NYPD said.

An unidentified 18-year-old, who had been shot in the leg, was also taken to Jamaica Hospital and listed in stable condition, police said.

Authorities blocked off the Lakewood Avenue Sunday evening as they collected evidence in the rain.

An investigation into the killing was ongoing, authorities said.
