A 16-year-old gang member who’s been busted on gun charges twice in the past eight months was nabbed for opening fire on another teen near a Brooklyn high school, police said Tuesday.
The teen, a reputed member of the G-Stone Crips whose name wasn’t released because of his age, squeezed off a shot at a 17-year-old boy he had a dispute with at East 26th Street and Glenwood Road outside Midwood High School shortly after 10 a.m. Monday, cops said.
One of the teens told the other to head outside to settle a beef and surveillance video showed them shooting at each other, according to law enforcement sources. School personnel heard three or four shots and the school was placed on lockdown.
Both teens took off on foot and the 16-year-old was arrested when cops found him in a nearby apartment building, the sources said.
The 17-year-old gunman is still in the wind, police said.
The arrested teen allegedly tried to stash his black and silver semi-automatic 9mm Glock 48 in the building’s stairwell but cops found it.
He was also busted for possession of a firearm on March 10. Just over two months later, on May 20, he was arrested again after he fired a round that activated a ShotSpotter alert, police said.
