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.
