A 15-year-old girl survived being shot in the leg in Bronx Saturday night.

The victim, whose name was not released, was blasted in the right thigh on Kelly Street near Westchester Avenue about 10:30 p.m., cops said.

She was rushed to Lincoln Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police are looking for a 23-year-old man they believe shot her, officials said.

The bloodshed comes on the heels of two senseless shootings of young girls that have outraged the city.

On Friday, 11-year-old Tayloni (Tutu) Mazyck was left paralyzed after being hit with a slug fired by 17-year-old Kane Cooper near the victim’s home in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

And police are still hunting for Kevin McClinton, 21, who they believe fired the shot that killed 14-year-old D’aja Robinson as she was riding home from a party on a Queens bus on May 18, 2013.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit NYPDCrimestoppers.com.

All calls are strictly confidential.
