Police are looking for a man who shot and killed a freshman from Campus Magnet Humanities and the Arts High in Cambria Heights after school let out yesterday. Kevin Miller was pronounced dead at Long Island Jewish Medical Center . A second teen, 17, who worked at a nearby car wash, is in stable condition at North Shore Hospital with a gunshot wound in the thigh.
Neighbors say a fight broke out among students from the high school (also known as Andrew Jackson) and shots were fired. Neighbors say that happens a lot. Neither victim was apparently involved in the fight.
Police are asking for anyone with information on the shooting to call 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
