The girl was walking with her friends at the time, police said.

A 15-year-old girl was shot in the hip while walking with a group of friends in the Bronx Tuesday night, police said. 

The girl was at the corner of Manor Avenue and East 173rd Street in Soundview at about 8:30 p.m. when a bullet hit her in the left hip, police said.

It was not immediately clear if she was the intended target. She was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi and was in stable condition, according to police.

The NYPD released images of two suspects, believed to be 18 to 20 years old, early Wednesday morning.
