A 14-year-old boy was busted in connection to two brazen BB gun shootings of a fruit stand worker and an MTA employee earlier this month, cops said. 

The boy, whose name wasn’t released because of his age, was nabbed Tuesday, police said Wednesday. 

The teen was part of a group of four who first targeted a 73-year-old man working at a fruit stand on White Plains Road near East 219th Street in Olinville on Nov. 3, cops said. 

The crew blasted the employee in the face with the BB gun while recording the 10:50 p.m. attack on a cell phone, police said. 

He was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition with a cut on his face, cops said. 

Then around 9 p.m. Nov. 8, the suspects allegedly walked up to the open window of a southbound 2 train on the East 219th Street platform, and fired the BB gun at a 37-year-old male conductor’s face before taking off, police said. 

He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, also in stable condition, with a cut on his face, cops said.
