Detectives are looking for the shooter who opened fire on three people near an East Harlem apartment complex on Thursday night.

Police said the gunfire erupted at 11:03 p.m. on July 2 in the area of East 108th Street and the FDR Drive.

Officers from the 23rd Precinct, while responding to a 911 call, found two victims at the location: a 26-year-old man shot in the left leg, and a 24-year-old woman who took bullets to her back and left leg.

Paramedics rushed both victims to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition. Their injuries are not life-threatening, police noted.

At around the same time, law enforcement sources said, a third victim who had been shot at the Harlem location, a 32-year-old man wounded in the right foot, arrived via private means at Metropolitan Hospital seeking treatment. He’s also being treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

Currently, detectives have not established a motive for the gun violence. They also do not have a description of the gunman responsible. No arrests have been made.

The investigation is ongoing.
