RICHMOND HILL — A 21-year-old man and a 17-year-old were shot on a street corner early Saturday in Queens.

Police found the 17-year-old with a gunshot wound in his torso at 102nd Street and Jamaica Avenue, and the 21-year-old, Michael Tineo, of East New York, with a bullet in his back, after responding to 911 calls reporting shots had been fired at 2:25 a.m.

Both victims were rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where the 17-year-old was in stable condition, and Tineo eventually died from his injuries.

No arrests had been made in the case on Sunday, and an investigation was ongoing.
