Police in Brooklyn are still looking for three suspects who shot a teenage boy while he was walking along a street on Saturday afternoon.

According to authorities, a 17-year-old boy was apparently on his way to a store and was passing 220 Livonia Ave. in Brownsville at around 2:59 p.m. on Feb. 24 when a dark colored vehicle pulled up alongside him.

Law enforcement sources said three men wearing dark clothing are believed to have exited the car and fired several times before speeding away eastbound.
