Gunshots rang out shortly before 5 p.m. at the Harry Maze Playground on Ave. D and E. 57th St., sending several teenagers scattering for cover.

Emergency personnel took four victims to Kings County Hospital, while two more victims walked into the hospital on their own, FDNY officials said.

Their conditions were not immediately known, but an NYPD source said none of their injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

All of the victims are teenagers, and β€œnone of the kids are talking now,” the source said.
