A Flatbush woman was hospitalized after being shot by a boy during a street fight, police in New York said.

Brooklyn Police said that the 50-year-old woman was shot in the stomach.

The victim was walking on Flatbush Avenue near Ditmas Avenue around 8:30 p.m. on Friday, when 16-year-old Tracey Gordon, began shooting. The victim told police that she heard shots, and moments later she was hit.

A second man also fired in the area, and it was not immediately clear whose bullet hit the woman. Police said that the woman is homeless.

Cops found Tracey in possession of a gun. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and attempted assault.

This was not the first time that Tracey was arrested. Last month, he got into an argument with a security officer while trying to leave school before dismissal.

He told the agent that he would return to school and shoot up the place in retaliation. In that incident, Tracey was charged with resisting arrest.
