BRIGHTON BEACH, Brooklyn (PIX11)  -- A Brooklyn mother is recovering after she was struck by gunfire while walking to pick up her children from school.

The NYPD said a 911 call came in at 2:23 p.m. on Wednesday for a report of a shooting on Brighton 6th Street.

Police said there was a large dispute in the area between two groups -- possibly made up of teens -- when gunfire rang out, and hit the victim who was near the groups.

According to the Department of Education, P.S. 253 and William E. Grady Career and Technical High School were placed on a temporary shelter-in after the shooting.

Safia Bibi , 35, told PIX11 that she's upset about the fighting that she sees often in her neighborhood.

Police believe Bibi was an unintended target. There have been no arrests. It's unclear if anyone in the groups were students.

The NYPD said the suspect is described as a black man, approximately 18-years-old, wearing grey sweats, and dreadlocks.
