A 14-year-old boy was wounded in a Bronx shooting — one of eight people shot across the city Wednesday into Thursday morning amid a recent citywide spate in gunplay, according to cops.

The teen was blasted in the right leg on Tiebout Avenue near Folin Street in the Bronx just before 4 a.m. Thursday, cops said.

He was “highly uncooperative” with authorities, so no further information about the incident is available, according to police.

At about 2 a.m. Wednesday, on Hawthorne Street near Rogers Avenue in Crown Heights, a 26-year-old man was shot twice in each thigh during a squabble with three men who took off in a car, police sources said.

He was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

A 29-year-old man was killed in a shooting around 12:20 a.m. on Butler Place near Grand Army Plaza when someone approached the car on the passenger’s side and fired, police said.

The victim, who was discovered with gunshot wounds to his torso, was rushed to Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made, according to police.

Around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday, a 27-year-old man was shot in the leg during a dispute on East 95th Street near Rutland Road.

He was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

A total of seven shootings with eight victims — two of whom were killed — were reported on Wednesday, according to the NYPD’s preliminary numbers.

One of the fatal victims was a 32-year-old man shot multiple times in the torso on Blake Avenue near Mother Gaston Boulevard, on the grounds of Brooklyn’s Brownsville Houses, around 2 p.m., police said.

He was rushed to Brooklyn Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The unidentified gunman was described by cops as a heavyset man wearing a black hat, white T-shirt, black shorts and black sneakers.

The other was a 28-year-old man gunned down around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday on St. Marks Avenue near Schenectady Avenue in Weeksville, Brooklyn after he borrowed a lighter at a bar and walked away with it, sparking a dispute. The other man shot him multiple times in the torso, police sources said.

No arrests have been made in either case.
