A 19-year-old man riding in a car was shot and critically injured in what detectives believe was probably a targeted shooting Thursday evening in Deer Park, Suffolk County police said.

Police said no arrests had been made in the shooting, which occurred around 9:45 p.m. near the intersection of Bay Shore and Commack roads.

Police said the teenager, whose identity has not been released, was a passenger in a 2019 Chevrolet Malibu when he was shot. Police stopped the vehicle a short distance from the scene and an ambulance was called, which transported the teen to a hospital for treatment, police said.

Police said it was not immediately clear where the shots were fired from or how many shots were fired, but said the shooting was not random and was not a road rage incident.

Police are asking anyone with information to call First Squad detectives at 631-854-8152 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
