A 14-year-old boy is facing attempted-murder charges — even as investigators try to figure out his motive in shooting and wounding a fellow teenager whom he apparently didn’t even know, cops said.
Shaaliver Douse allegedly opened fire at Boston Road and Jefferson Place, near Crotona Park at 8:50 p.m. on May 16.
He was taken into custody on Friday and charged with attempted murder, assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, authorities said.

The Bronx County District Attorney's Office is dropping the charges against a 14-year-old accused of shooting another teenager.
Police had charged Shaaliver Douse as an adult for the attempted murder of a 15-year-old at Boston Road and Jefferson Place earlier this month.
Prosecutors would not specify why the charges are being dropped, but say the case is pending further investigation.
Police shoot dead armed 14-year-old boy in New York City
A police officer shot an armed 14-year-old boy in New York City early on Sunday after he did not drop his gun when ordered, police said.
After hearing gunshots, two officers came across the boy, whom police identified as Shaaliver Douse, chasing another male down a street in the South Bronx, shooting after him with a 9-millimeter semi-automatic handgun as he ran, police said.
The uniformed officers identified themselves as police and ordered Douse to drop his gun, police said. He did not do so, and one of the officers shot a single round, hitting Douse in his lower left jaw, police said.
