Police say a fight that broke out on a sidewalk in Upper Manhattan sent a teen to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds Saturday night.

The shooting occurred around 9 p.m. outside an apartment building in Inwood on West 204th Street, according to the NYPD.

Officials say the 15-year-old victim was shot multiple times following a dispute between two other males. In a description shared late Saturday, police say the suspects were dressed in all black and between the ages of 15 and 20.

Both suspects fled the area on foot; it wasn't clear who was the suspected gunman.

EMS responded to the neighborhood and rushed the teen to St. Barnabas Hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
