A teenage boy was fatally shot by a gunman on a Citi Bike in SoHo on Tuesday, according to police.

The 16-year-old male victim intervened in an argument between two groups of girls in the courtyard of the luxury Dominick Hotel on Spring St. near Varick St. at around 2:25 p.m., cop sources said.

Another teen stepped in to defend a girl in the opposing group and fired several shots, hitting the victim once in the head and twice in the thigh, the sources added.

The victim, whose name was not immediately released, attended high school in the neighborhood, sources said.

“There’s a lot of rowdiness around here, but there’s never any violence,” said the witness, who has worked in the area since 2010. “This is the first time something like this happened.”
