A young woman was shot in Brooklyn Wednesday afternoon after two gunmen on Razor scooters opened fire, cops said. 

The 32-year-old was walking on Myrtle Avenue at Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant when she heard shots and realized she’d been struck in her right hip, according to police.

The victim, who sources said did not appear to be the intended target, was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition. 

The shooters were described as two males riding Razor scooters, police said.

Cops found 15 shell casings behind a nearby building and are looking into whether the shooting was gang related, police sources said.

One of the gunmen was wearing a white hoodie with the word Nike written in black and the other was wearing a black hoodie, the sources said.

Alvin Davis, a resident of NYCHA’s Tompkins Houses, called the shootings that have ravaged the Big Apple this summer “crazy.”

“I got grandkids who live out here in this complex,” he said.

“This gun violence has got to cease. I mean it’s crazy. It’s black-on-black crime. People are doing things that shouldn’t be done and I feel like it’s time to really come together and be able to socialize in friendly and Christian love and also just be brothers and sisters in harmony. This violence is not the way.”
