Two teenagers caught in crossfire of broad daylight shooting in NYC

Two teenagers were shot and injured blocks from the Brooklyn Museum on Wednesday morning when a pair of gunmen aiming for someone else opened fire, cops and police sources said.

The senseless violence took place just after 9:30 a.m. on the corner of Franklin Avenue and Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights — leaving the two bystanders, a 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy, with gunshot wounds, cops said.

The girl was struck in the right leg and the boy was hit in the left arm, according to police. Both were taken to Kings County Hospital and were expected to recover.

Cops believe at least five shots were fired, though investigators were continuing to search the area for shell casings.

The shooters ran off, going east on Eastern Parkway, cops said.

The teens appeared to have been outside the Wise Deli and Grill when the gunfire broke out.

“I heard like two firecracker sounds and people started scattering, right and left,” said Elaine Antrobus, 44, who works across the street from the deli, and said a lot of schoolkids were in the area at the time.

“It was chaotic. Nobody knew which way to run,” Antrobus said.

The gun violence was one of just five shootings this year which is slightly down from last year when there were seven as of Sunday, NYPD data shows.
