Two underage teens are in critical condition, according to police, after a shooting Tuesday night in Fort Pierce.

Moore Elementary School. Witnesses said there were a seemingly endless amount of gunshots. 

Investigators said the teens were walking on the sidewalk with a group of other individuals when they were shot. Both victims were taken to the hospital and are now in critical condition.
