Two teens injured, one critically, in Syracuse car shooting

Two teen boys and a driver of unknown age were driving in a Honda in Syracuse, New York, when a gray SUV pulled in behind them.  The occupants of the SUV opened fire, injuring the two teens, one critically.  The driver then chased the SUV, but was stopped when he was re-ended by a moving van.  The driver then bailed out and ran, leaving the critically-injured teen in the back seat.

Officers believe this may be gang-related.

From the article and news footage:
Police have identified the teens as 15-year-old Ronnie Daniels and 17-year-old Lamyke Kelly.

The incident began in the 300 block of Furman Street, just after two p.m. Police say the victims, who were inside a gray Honda Accord, were struck by gunfire coming from a dark colored SUV-type vehicle.

Kelly was found in the 300 block of Furman Street after police say he fled from the car when shots were fired. Daniels continued to drive away from the scene and was later involved in a crash at S. Salina and Castle streets on the city’s South Side.

Police say Daniels was struck by at least one bullet and is currently in critical condition at Upstate University Hospital. Kelly was grazed by bullets, police said, and is expected to make a full recovery.
