Yambo was beaten in the chest, and a 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy were each beaten in the foot.
All three were taken to Lincoln Hospital, where Yambo was declared dead.Other teens were expected to survive their injuries.
Teens are believed to be innocent bystanders.
According to police, the shootings came from two people gesturing and screaming at each other from across the street.
“The gentleman on the east side of the street pulls out the firearm and he releases his firearm in the westward direction,” said New York Police Department Chief McCormack.
Investigators are looking for both the shooter and the intended target.
