MELROSE, The Bronx (WABC) -- A man is in critical condition after being shot while riding a scooter in the Bronx.

Police say the 20-year-old was riding the scooter along 156 Street just off Melrose, yards away from a police precinct. They say two men then jumped out of a gray SUV and began firing. One of the bullets reportedly hit the victim in the head.

He was rushed to Lincoln Hospital where he remains in critical condition.

"My grandmother and her home attendant was here eating ice cream and then they left and this happened. That could have been my grandmother," said Lucas Hernandez.

Moments after the shooting, police took a suspect into custody about three blocks from where it all happened.

Joseph Duran says his mother has lived in the area for four decades almost - but with the violence, he wants to move her out.

"I tried moving my mother out for years. It's a bad neighborhood, but it is what it is," he said.

Police are still searching for a second suspect in the shooting.

The name of the 20-year-old victim has not been released.



The motive of the shooting is unknown.
