NFA North HS student, 33-year-old seriously injured in Newburgh shooting

Posted: Updated:

Two people are recovering in the hospital after a shooting spree in Newburgh Tuesday.

Police say a total 17 shots were fired on South Clark Street.

One of the victims, an NFA North High School student, has been identified as 17-year-old Allah Gayle. The other victim is 33-year-old Aaron Stone

Authorities say both men were taken to St. Luke's Hospital with serious injuries. Gayle was shot in the leg and abdomen and is said to be in the ICU, while Stone was shot in the hand and leg.

According to Newburgh police, the incident was picked up around 6 p.m. on Tuesday by Shot Spotter, a resource the department uses that immediately alerts them to shots fired in the city.

The incident follows a triple homicide that occurred on Jan. 26. A young family was gunned down and a 3-year-old is in critical condition.

The Newburgh Enlarged City School District released a statement saying in part, “We are saddened to hear about the shooting that occurred in our community. Our response team has been pulled together to work with anyone in our school community who was impacted."

No arrests have been made.
