Police say a ghost gun may have been used in the deadly shooting. Authorities seized 6 shells of bullets at the site.
The young woman who was shot dead was identified as 16-year-old Angellyh Yambo on Saturday morning.
Investigators said Yambo was leaving Bronx Charter High School in the South Bronx when gunfire was heard around 1:45 pm at the corner of E. 156th and St. Anns.
Yambo was shot in the chest, while another 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy were shot in the leg.
The three were taken to Lincoln Hospital, where Yambo was pronounced dead.
The other young people should survive the injuries.
Teenagers are believed to be innocent bystanders.
Police said the shooting began when two people yelled and waved at each other across the street.
“The gentleman on the east side of the street draws a gun and shoots west,” New York Police Chief McCormack said.
