A 55-year-old woman was shot in the back outside the Bronx Zoo on Friday evening, authorities said.

The victim was shot while standing on Southern Boulevard and East 187th Street — yards from the zoo’s Birds of Prey exhibit — around 5:40 p.m., according to the NYPD.

Police were looking for two men who were passing by on a motorbike who might be “possible suspects,” according to the department.
