A 16-year-old boy was shot and critically wounded Sunday night in Queens, at the exact same location where his brother was murdered two years ago.

Authorities say LeShawn has no known gang affiliations, and the investigation into his shooting is ongoing.

EMS responded to the scene and transported him to Long Island Jewish Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.
