The shooting occurred around 10:45 p.m. on the unit block of Montana Street.
Police say the 16-year-old boy was shot twice in the chest in front of his residence.
He was rushed to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was admitted in critical condition.
Authorities say this latest act of violence is less than a mile from where a 15-year-old boy was shot on Sunday.
Police have arrested two suspects in Sunday's shooting but are searching for the person who shot the teen last night.
