A woman was shot coming out of a subway station in Queens Friday morning, and it appears she was the unintended target of the gunfire.

The 28-year-old victim was shot in the stomach near the intersection of 41st Avenue and 10th Street in Long Island City at around 7 a.m.

She had just exited the nearby 21st Street - Queensbridge F subway station when she was shot.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.

NYPD officials said Brown appeared to be waiting at the entrance of the subway station for his victim to emerge.
