Bronx detectives are looking for the shooter who pulled the trigger on two teenagers, killing one of them, at a subway station on Monday evening.

Police said the gunfire erupted at about 10:05 p.m. on April 10 at the Burke Avenue station on the 2/5 line, above White Plains Road, in Allerton.

Officers from the 47th Precinct and NYPD Transit District 12, in responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found both 17-year-old victims wounded at the scene.

One of the victims, who suffered gunshot wounds to his head, arm and shoulder, was later pronounced dead at Jacobi Hospital. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

Authorities said the other victim, who took a bullet to his hip, remains in stable condition at Jacobi Hospital.
