A 4-year-old boy was shot when two armed men burst into a home in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn late Sunday.

Police say the boy was hit in the right leg by the suspects, who entered the Van Sinderen Avenue home through an unlocked door just after 9 p.m.

While robbing the residents in the home, authorities say one of the suspects fired a shot while waving a gun in the air.

The shot hit the boy. He was rushed to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition.

The suspects grabbed an unknown amount of property from the residents and fled the scene.

Police are searching for suspects. No arrests have been made.
