THE BRONX - Police have released surveillance video of two men accused of shooting a teen in University Heights last month. 

It happened on Grand Avenue and West 183rd Street on April 23 around 10 a.m. 

Police say the 17-year-old victim was walking along Grand Avenue when one of the two suspects crossed the street and began firing. The teen was shot in the right calf, and the suspect ran away.

Police say the teen was rushed to St. Barnaba’s Hospital where he was treated and released. 

A second shooting was reported 15 minutes later, about a mile away after the teen was hit, according to police. 

However, they say the two shootings do not appear to be connected.

Police are looking for the two men seen on surveillance video.
