OZONE PARK, Queens (WABC) -- Four innocent bystanders, including two teenagers, were shot inside of a park in Queens Tuesday evening.

Police say all four victims were shot inside London Planetree Skate Park located at Atlantic Avenue and 88th Street in Ozone Park.

Witness accounts disagree about where the two gunmen came from, but they entered the park and looked around and started firing.

At least 23 shots were fired, in a mad burst of violence with children nearby.

Of the four victims, police say a 15-year-old girl was shot in the leg and a 16-year-old boy was shot in the back. Both were taken to Long Island Jewish Medical Center in stable condition.

A 20-year-old man was shot twice in the leg and a 32-year-old man was shot in the leg. They were both taken to Jamaica in stable condition.

All the victims are expected to survive.

Police say none of the victims appeared to be the intended targets.

Police looked at surveillance camera video to see if they could find the car that carried the men into the park, but no arrests have been made yet.

They say the park is a known gang hangout and they believe this was gang related.
