A wild drive-by shooting in the Bronx on Wednesday night wounded four people — including at least two innocent bystanders, police and sources said.

A 26-year-old janitor and a 60-year-old woman were caught in a hail of gunfire when shots rang off just after 5 p.m. near the intersection of Burke and Barnes Avenues in Williamsbridge, according to police sources. 

Two teenage males — a 15-year-old and an 18-year-old — were also struck during the drive-by.

Two gunmen fired at least eight shots from the back seat of a black SUV that whizzed by on Burke Avenue before making a U-turn and fleeing in the opposite direction, sources said.

The 18-year-old was left clinging to life after being struck in the head, police and sources said.   An airsoft BB pistol was found near the victim, sources added.

The youngest victim was hit in the buttocks, police said. The woman was shot in the leg and the 26-year-old man was shot in the torso.

Investigators are still working to determine if both teens were intended targets, sources said. 

Surveillance footage of the shooting obtained by The Post shows a group of people on the sidewalk scrambling for cover as the SUV drives by.

All four victims were hospitalized. The 18-year-old was in critical condition and the other three victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police and sources said.
