A 17-year-old boy was shot and wounded near his Brooklyn high school Friday afternoon, police said.

The victim, struck in the abdomen, was rushed to Coney Island Hospital and is expected to survive. The gunman, clad in a gray hoodie and black pants and carrying a black book bag, was being sought later Friday.

The shooting happened just after 1:05 p.m. outside Lincoln High School, near Ocean and Shore parkways. Classes had ended for the day at 12:42 p.m.

The gunplay prompted a shelter in place order, with no one permitted to leave the school while police investigated.

The incident didn’t surprise neighborhood resident Anthony Dermont, who said he attended the Coney Island school and has lived in the neighborhood all his life.

“A lot of people who used to live here gave up,” Dermont said. “They are not here because of guns. You can’t walk the street without looking over your shoulder.”

On Wednesday, the first day of the school year for charter schools, Unique Smith, 15, was shot dead inside McLaughlin Park in Downtown Brooklyn shortly after classes ended. The gunman and an accomplice are still being sought.

A witness told police she heard the victim and the suspects talking about a gang shortly before the shooting.

Smith was a student nearby at Brooklyn Laboratory Charter Schools.
