The police say 15-yeaar-old Tyvon Corbett of West 125th Street was shot in the shoulder and fatally wounded. He was transported to St. Luke's Hospital where he was declared dead.
The New York Post reported that Corbett, according to witnesses, may have been involved in a fight at a basketball court that spilled into the street. His uncle told the newspaper, though, that his nephew was only an innocent bystander.
