Gunfire reported near Kensington High School

A man was seen shooting at another man on Hempstead Avenue near Tower Street, about a block from Kensington High School, in what may have been gang-related violence Saturday afternoon.

Northeast District police were called about the gunfire at 2:36 p.m. by an anonymous witness. One of the men allegedly involved, a 25-year-old Hempstead Avenue resident, told officers he was being targeted by the “Edison Boys.”

The caller said both men in the incident were armed and one ran into a house on Hempstead Avenue. No injuries were reported.
