A teen gunman is on the loose after shooting eight people, including three children, at a garden party in the Bronx, New York early this morning, police said.

Investigators are looking for a 17-year-old suspect, identified as Oneil Dasilva of Mount Vernon, New York, after the rampage.

A 24-year-old man was rushed to Montefiore North Division in critical condition after the gunman opened fire indiscriminately, the New York Daily News reported.

The victim is fighting for his life after being shot twice in the chest during the 3.39am attack on East 221st Street in Williamsbridge, officials said.

The suspect sprayed the party with gunfire following some sort of dispute, blasting an 11-year-old boy in the right leg, a 13-year-old girl in the left thigh and a 14-year-old girl in the back.

The children were rushed to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, the Daily News reported. Read More
