Two teenagers are charged in connection with the shooting of a 12-year-old girl on a basketball court in Queens.

It happened yesterday just before 5 p.m. near Beach 59th Street and Shorefront Parkway in Arverne.

That's when police say 18-year-old Dwight Henderson shot the 12-year-old girl in the thigh.

Police say the victim was not the shooter's intended target.

She was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.

Police say witnesses pointed them in the direction of the suspected shooter.

When they found Henderson, police say they saw him give 16-year-old Geena Hill a gun.

Henderson faces charges including attempted murder, assault and criminal use of a firearm.

Hill is charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
