A 16-year-old girl was hospitalized in grave condition Friday afternoon following a shooting at a playground in a Brooklyn neighborhood.
NYPD officials say the teen was shot around 3 p.m. near Wyckoff Street and Hoyt Street in Boerum Hill.
The violence started shortly after three young people on Citi Bikes rolled up near the playground and started firing. Surveillance video obtained by the NYPD allegedly shows the wanted suspects fleeing on bikes and on foot.
The victim, who police sources describe as an unintended target, was caught in the crossfire and struck by gunfire in the head. She had been hanging out at the playground with friends after being let out of her high school not far away.
Medics rushed the 16-year-old to a nearby Brooklyn hospital where she was last listed in grave condition, according to authorities.
Additional suspect details were not immediately available.
Friday's shooting marks the eighth teen shooting in New York City in the past four days -- three of the victims, all 16, have been killed.
