A student took a bullet to the leg in a drive-by shooting that occurred during dismissal at a nearby city high school Monday afternoon, cops and police sources said.
The gunfire rang out around 2:30 p.m. at Bathgate Avenue and East Fordham Road about a half block from Theodore Roosevelt High School in The Bronx, striking the 17-year-old boy in the left leg, cops said.
The shooter was in a dark Dodge SUV that was being driven past a group of students when the bullets were fired, police sources said.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the victim was the intended target in the incident, sources said.
A stunned veteran school-safety agent told The Post, “Is this 1990s South Central LA?
“We’re doing drive-bys in front of schools now? This doesn’t seem real,” the agent said.
