A 75-year-old woman was shot in the Bronx Friday night when she was caught in the crossfire between two gangs, police said, according to the NY Post.
Authorities say the victim, who was not either group’s intended target, was hit in the right thigh around 7:45 p.m. as she walked home through Basil Behagen Playground in Morrisania.
Nobody else appears to have been shot during the fight, according to police.
Emergency responders rushed her to Lincoln Hospital, where she remains in stable condition. The cause of the dispute is unknown, and cops have not yet made any arrests.
The playground is located on Tinton Avenue bet. E 166 St and E 165 St
