A 17 year old was shot Tuesday morning while walking with a friend near N.W. 16th Street and Meridian; now police are trying to determine if the shooting is related to two other attacks.

Oklahoma City police say the boy and a friend were walking to school in the 4300 block of N.W. 16th Street around 5:30 a.m. when they were approached by two men in a car. The men demanded the teens give them everything they had.

When the teens said they didn't have anything, one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the 17 year old in the chest. The teen was rushed to the hospital where he's listed in critical condition.

Police are trying to determine if this shooting is connected to two other shootings late Monday night. A woman says she was kidnapped, robbed and shot near N.W. 122nd Street and Council.  She's expected to recover.
