UPDATED 3:30 p.m., May 19
The NYPD said that the shooting took place just before 9:30 p.m. on May 18 in the vicinity of Atlantic Avenue and 88th Street, near the London Planetree Playground.
Law enforcement sources said the victim — Joshua Flores of West Tremont Avenue in the Bronx — took a bullet to his upper torso at the location and was transported via private means to Jamaica Hospital, where he later died.
Officers from the 102nd Precinct initially responded to the playground after receiving a 911 call about shots fired there, but were directed to the hospital after learning that someone had been wounded.
Members of the NYPD Crime Scene Unit were still at the shooting location on Friday morning, combing the area for evidence.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
