The pair — ages 13 and 15 — were found behind 57 Grove St. in Bushwick shortly after 5:30 p.m., cops said. 

They were transported to Kings County Hospital where the 13-year-old, identified as Rame Pierre-Louis, was pronounced dead, police said. The 15-year-old remained in critical condition Friday night.
