A 13-year-old boy has been arrested after two teens were shot and wounded in a brawl near their New York City high school.

The New York Daily News reports that the teens were scuffling Wednesday about a block from Campus Magnet High School in the Cambria Heights neighborhood of Queens when the 13-year-old boy allegedly pulled a gun and opened fire.

Gunfire hit a 16-year-old girl in the right ankle and a 14-year-old boy in the right leg, police say. The victims were taken to local hospitals, and both expected to recover.

Officers apprehended the alleged shooter after a four-block chase.

The two victims are students at Campus Magnet High School, but the alleged shooter is not, police say. He lives near the scene of the shooting.

The boy was charged with assault, weapon possession and reckless endangerment. He was held without bail at a juvenile detention facility.
