SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- One teen remains in critical condition following a shooting in Syracuse that sent two people to the hospital. It happened on Furman Street around 2:00 p.m. Wednesday. According to investigators, a car pulled into a driveway on the street when a dark colored SUV pulled in behind and opened fire.
Ronnie Daniels, 15, and Lamyke Kelly, 17, were hit by gunfire. Both cars then sped off. Shortly after, police said the car ran a red light at Castle and Salina Streets and was hit by another vehicle. The car hit a utility pole and the driver tried to keep going. Bystanders were able to stop the car and keep the driver from fleeing.
Both victims were taken to Upstate University Hospital, where Daniels is in critical condition. Kelly's injuries are said to be non-life threatening and he is expected to be released.
Police said they don't believe this was a random crime, and it could have gang ties.
"The public should be concerned that people are running around shooting shots in the middle of the day and we need the public's help to try to find out who was responsible from that. Do I feel the public's in any danger of this happening again from these same people? I highly doubt it because we believe this car was targeted for whatever reason," said Sgt. Tom Connellan, Syracuse Police.
The SUV was last seen driving westbound towards South Avenue from Furman Street.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call investigators at (315) 442-5222.
