Crime scene officers search for evidence at the scene where a 14 year old boy was shot.

A 14-year-old boy was clinging to life after he was shot in the head in Brooklyn Wednesday night, police and witnesses said.

The violence unfolded as the boy, whose name was not immediately released, was walking home from a party with a group of friends, according to police sources. The victim and his pals bumped into another group of young men and women at the corner of  Evergreen Ave. and Cornelia St. in Bushwick just before 11 p.m.

Sources said words were exchanged between the groups and at some point, someone in the second group pulled out a handgun and fired, hitting the boy in his temple.

He was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital, where he was in critical condition, according to police sources.

A woman who lives on the corner where the boy was shot said she heard gunfire, looked out her window and saw the youth lying on the  ground.

“I just heard four gun shots right in a row, pop, pop, pop, pop,'” said Lupe Estrella, 48. “When I looked out my window, I saw a young man laying there. It looked almost like he was convulsing.”

Estrella, who is a former volunteer emergency medical technician and still keeps up her certifications, sped out of her house in her pajamas and tried to help the boy.

“It was just basic instinct. I ran out to him and he had barely a pulse,” she said. “He was bleeding out his ears and his mouth, and he had what looked like a bullet right in the middle of his forehead, between his eyes.”

“I still cannot believe it,” she said of the shooting. “I’m still traumatized.”

Police have not made any arrests and are continuing their investigation.
