The New York Police Department has revealed frightening new footage of gunfire blazing outside a Bronx elementary school earlier this month.
Youngsters would have been caught in the crossfire if school had ended a few minutes earlier, according to authorities.
It happened around 2:50 p.m. on Oct. 5 outside the Boys Prep Bronx Elementary School, according to authorities.
According to authorities, two groups of males or teenagers in their late teens or early twenties fired shots.
According to Principal Dr. Khalek Kirkland, the shooting put the school, which has around 800 children in grades K-8, on lockdown. According to him, the local precinct alerted the school right away.
According to authorities, one shooter was part of a group of three that fired at another group of two, one of which was the other shooter. There were no injuries documented.
As of Thursday morning, no arrests had been made.
The video was shot as the city grapples with a growing trend of gun violence among youngsters and teenagers.
