A 17-year-old was shot dead and two others hurt after a brazen gunman stepped out of a car and opened fire on the trio as they walked down a street in Brooklyn, police said.

The three victims were targeted while walking along East 82nd Street near Farragut Road in Canarsie around 10:15 a.m., police said.

The gunman got out of the back seat of a gray sedan and began shooting, an NYPD spokeswoman said.

Bryan Sanon, of Brooklyn, was shot in the chest and died at the scene, police said.

An 18-year-old was shot in the face and a third victim, a man, 19, suffered graze wounds in both his legs, cops said.

The two wounded teens were transported to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition, authorities said. The suspects remain at large, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
