QUEENS — Two teens were shot, including one fatally, during a drive-by shooting in broad daylight in Jamaica on Sunday, police said.

The shooting, which sources said may have been gang-related, occurred about 3:20 p.m. when a group of teens was standing in front of a house on Lakewood Avenue, near Remington Street.

A gunman in a blue car pulled up and fired multiple shots, striking the victims, police said.

Khalil Bowlin, 17, of Jamaica, was hit in the back. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

An 18-year-old man, whose name was not released, was shot in the calf and taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.

Police said Bowlin had been arrested 10 times in the past two years, including for robbery. He was most recently arrested in February 2014 on charges of criminal possession of a weapon.

As of Monday morning there had been no arrests in the case, the NYPD said. The investigation was ongoing.
