Police are looking for two young men who fired guns along a Brownsville street earlier this week and wound up injuring an 18-year-old woman with a stray bullet.

The shooting took place at 5:40 pm on April 6 in front of a Van Dyke Houses apartment on Sutter Avenue between Mother Gatson Boulevard and Powell Street.

According to authorities, the two suspects arrived on the scene and began firing shots with two firearms, before running into the building.

A law enforcement source familiar with the case said the shooters opened fire on another individual near 410 Sutter Ave. Six shots were fired in total.

One of the bullets, police said, wound up hitting the female victim, who was sitting outside the location when the bullets flew. Paramedics rushed her to Brookdale Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

Police released images on April 10 of the suspects involved in the shooting. Cops described one of the suspects as a man between 17 and 22 years of age who wore a red hooded sweatshirt, black pants and light-colored sneakers.

The other gunman, police said, was a man between 17 and 22 years of age who wore a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black-and-white sneakers.
