She was rushed to Kings County Hospital and is expected to survive her injuries.

The octogenarian was not the intended target of the shooter, according to law enforcement sources.

The victim’s red walker was left on the sidewalk next to a blood-splatter stain as nearly 20 shell casings littered the street, photos of the aftermath show.

The shooting followed a bloody weekend as summer-eque weather rolled into the Big Apple.

Six people were shot in four separate incidents on Saturday night alone. Two of the victims, a pair of brothers, died in a murder-suicide in Queens.
