EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn — Police are investigating after two teens were shot Monday night in Brooklyn, according to the NYPD.

Authorities said the gunfire erupted around 9:50 p.m. on Montauk Avenue, near the intersection of New Lots and Dumont avenues, in the East New York section of the borough.

According to police, an 18-year-old girl was shot in the leg and a 15-year-old boy was shot in the stomach, hand and leg.

The two teens were taken to two different area hospitals for treatment of what police described as non-life-threatening injuries.

No further information about the incident was immediately available and no arrests have been made.

The shooting comes less than a week after a triple shooting Sunday left two teen boys dead and a third hospitalized in the Cypress Hills area of Brooklyn.
