The title compound, C11H11N3, crystallizes with two mol­ecules (A and B) in the asymmetric unit. The geometries of both mol­ecules are very similar, with the exception of the torsion angles of the inter-ring chains; the values for C—N—C—C are 67.4 (5) and −69.3 (5)° for mol­ecules A and B, respectively. The dihedral angles between the pyridyl ring planes are 84.0 (2) and 83.2 (2)° for mol­ecules A and B, respectively. In the crystal, weak inter­molecular N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds and C—H⋯π inter­actions contribute to the stabilization of the packing.
