A 17-year-old boy died after being struck by an ambulette driver in the Bronx on Monday night. Now police say he was shoved into the vehicle's path and have classified the death as a homicide.

The NYPD says officers found Angel Reyes-Godoy with severe head trauma on Bainbridge Avenue near East 194th Street just before 8 p.m. on December 10th. He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to the NYPD, the driver of the ambulette, a 2009 Ford E-250, was going north on Bainbridge Avenue when Reyes-Godoy "emerged from between two parked cars." The driver remained on the scene and has not been charged.

It's believed Reyes-Godody may have been in an argument with at least one person before he was fatally shoved.

A friend of Reyes-Godody told NBC New York, "I just heard people say they jumped him, threw him into the street, and a white van hit his head."

The investigation is ongoing.
