Three teens were wounded during an early morning shooting outside of Brooklyn’s Fulton Street station on Sunday.

According to police sources, shots rang out at around 5:22 a.m. just outside the subway station entrance near Nostrand Avenue.

Two 19-year-old women were shot in the buttocks and torso, respectively, while a 19-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the knee. EMS rushed all three victims to Kings County Hospital, where they are expected to recover.

Sources familiar with the investigation say the victims were uncooperative when questioned.

The scene of the shooting was left riddled with shell casings and blood as police cordoned-off a large section of the roadway Sunday morning. Sources state that over 10 shots were fired by an unknown assailant, and blood could be seen smeared over the steps of the subway station. 

No arrests have been made and the investigation remains ongoing.

This incident follows a sequence of bloody shootings that took place over the weekend, including an apparent murder-suicide in Queens that left a man and woman dead, a police involved shooting that killed a knife-wielding man at a Bronx 7-Eleven, and a shooting of two victims outside of a Brooklyn Home Depot.
