Police have released video footage of two suspects after a 16-year-old boy was shot in the head on a Far Rockaway street corner Sunday night.

The victim was at Seagirt Avenue and Beach 26th Street at about 8:50 p.m. when he was wounded, according to authorities. EMS transported the boy to Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.

According to published reports, the victim was shot just a few blocks from where his older brother was fatally gunned down in 2012.

Video footage of the teen’s shooting released from the NYPD on Tuesday shows the suspects — described as adults males — running from the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
