BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A gunman shot into a crowd at a house party on Sunday, injuring a teen, police said.

The shooter and four other suspects tried to make their way into the event inside a residential building near Lewis Avenue and Quincy Street around 10 p.m. but were refused entry, according to officials.

One of the suspects brandished a gun and fired one shot, striking a 17-year-old in the butt, an NYPD spokeswoman said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition, police said.

The group fled the building in an unknown direction, according to officials.

Police released surveillance video of the suspects on Tuesday, showing them running out of the building and leaping over a gate.

Officials describe them as being in their late teens or early 20s.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477).
