Two teens have been busted in the brazen caught-on-video shooting of a man in a Bronx barber shop last month, cops said Friday. 

Brandon Beltres, 18, was arrested Thursday and charged with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment for allegedly shooting the 22-year-old victim, who was sitting in a chair at the 13 Barber Shop on East Gun Hill Road near Tryon Avenue in Norwood around 6:45 p.m. Oct. 22, authorities said. 

Six days after the incident, cops also arrested a 17-year-old boy, who was charged with attempted murder, too, police said. 

His name was not released because of his age. 

Video released at the time shows one suspect barging inside and firing at the victim at point-blank range — striking him in the stomach and knocking him to the floor.

The gunman then passed the weapon to his accomplice, who pumped a bullet into the victim’s leg, according to authorities and the footage.

The chair toppled to the floor, and at least two other people in the shop took cover, the video shows.

The victim was hospitalized in stable condition.
