Two teens, one fatally, were shot in a drive-by shooting Jamaica Sunday afternoon, police said.

A drive-by shooting in Jamaica Sunday afternoon left a 17-year-old dead and another teen wounded, cops said.

The victims were standing on Lakewood Avenue about 3:20 p.m. when a vehicle pulled up and gunfire erupted from the passenger side, officials said. The car, described as a blue sedan, then fled, police said.

Khalil Bowlin was hit once in the torso and taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to cops.

The second victim, an 18-year-old man, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and was transported to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.

Police are still looking for the shooter.
