A teen and a man are hospitalized following a shooting in Queens.

Investigators say it happened at the Astoria Houses just after 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police say a 15-year-old boy was shot in the shoulder and a 30-year-old was shot in the leg.

The teen is listed in stable condition, while the man is in critical condition.

"I don't know too much that what went on out here today. I just know I ran downstairs because my brother took my son to the store. It sounded like a cannon was being let off. About six shots," said resident Shakeena Pratt. "The sad thing about it is, they're doing it a bit too much out here. This is getting annoying. There's too many kids out here. There's kids that usually play outside this building. It's a good thing they weren't even here today."

Police say they have a suspect in custody but are still searching for another.

Charges haven't been filed yet.
