A 17-year-old driver took another teen to the hospital after a car pulled up next to his 2011 Infiniti sedan and fired gunshots, striking the back seat passenger twice, in North Amityville early Saturday, according to Suffolk police.

The 17-year-old male passenger, who did not incur life-threatening injuries, was driven from Warren Street to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip, police said.
