    Authorities say a 12-year-old Jersey City boy was killed and his father was wounded when shots rang out on a city street.

    Hudson County prosecutors tell The Jersey Journal that 12-year-old Gywan Levine Jr. was dribbling a basketball as he and his father, Gywan Sr., walked along Rutgers Avenue just before 10 p.m. Friday.
     
    Witnesses say the pair were approached by two men, and three shots soon rang out. The younger Levine was shot in the shoulder area, while his father was hit in the leg.
     
    Both victims were taken to a hospital, but Gywan Jr. was pronounced dead there a short time later. His father remained hospitalized Saturday in stable condition.
     
    A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
