Two people — including a woman believed to be a bystander — were shot in Ridgewood Wednesday night.

A 20-year-old man was shot in the foot and a 37-year-old woman was grazed in the head by four men on bicycles near Cornelia Street and Cypress Avenue at about 8 p.m., police said.

The woman was taken to Elmhurst hospital in stable condition. She is believed to be an innocent bystander, according to the New York Post. A police spokesperson, however, was unable to confirm that.

The 20-year-old walked into Wyckoff Heights Hospital and is in stable condition, police said.

Police described the suspects as four Hispanic men. The men rode off westbound on Cornelia Street, following the shooting.

Police have made no arrests yet and the investigation is ongoing.

Members of the advisory body will advocate concerns through means of community engagement by participating in one of two cohorts. The first will be made up of high school representatives between the ages of 13 and 17, while the second cohort will be comprised of young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
