BROOKLYN — Two men were shot, including a teen, Tuesday night near a park in Crown Heights, authorities said.

One of the victims, an 18-year-old man, was struck four times on Schenectady Avenue and St. Mark's Avenue — near St. John's Park — at 7:51 p.m., according to the FDNY.

Just three minutes later, another man was shot inside the park just steps away on Bergen Street and Troy Avenue.

Both men were taken to Kings County Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

It is not clear what sparked the gunplay.
