A 12-year-old boy was fatally shot in the head while he was sitting in a parked minivan with two other people in Brooklyn on Thursday night, police sources said.

One of the other occupants, a 20-year-old woman, was also shot when gunfire erupted on East 56 Street and Linden Boulevard in East Flatbush just after 7:45 p.m., sources said. A 8-year-old girl was also inside the van and was not injured.

The boy was struck in the chest and head and transported to Kings County Hospital where he was pronounced dead, sources said.
