Police have released video of a wild shootout involving five teenage boys in Jamaica Monday that left one of them injured with a gunshot wound.

The video shows a group of four teens – one wearing a ski mask and the three others in hoodies and face coverings – approaching a 17-year-old at around 5 p.m. outside a house at 150-42 118th Ave.

Two of the suspects can then be seen pulling out guns and firing at the 17-year-old.

The suspects, the video shows, continue blasting at the 17-year-old who runs to the other side of the road and then fires a bullet back at the group. The 17-year-old, who is blurred out in the video, was shot in the thigh.

The group then fled the scene to parts unknown, police said.

The 17-year-old was transported by EMS to Long Island Jewish Hospital in stable condition, according to police.

Police describe all four suspects as having dark complexions and slim builds.

There is no known motive for the shooting, cops said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
