Security video that the NYPD released early Thursday morning shows a recent shooting on a Bushwick street in which a gunman opened fire on a car with pedestrians walking by.
Authorities are asking for assistance in locating and identifying the suspect, identified as a male, Hispanic last seen wearing a red t-shirt, black shorts, red sneakers and carrying a black backpack, and his three cohorts wanted for questioning in connection to last week’s shooting.
According to police, the shooting took place on July 8 at 9 p.m. in front of 341 Knickerbocker Ave., where the suspect discharged his firearm several times, striking the passenger side of a 2005 Kia Sedona minivan. The 41-year-old occupant of the vehicle was not injured, law enforcement agents said.
In the video, the suspect can be seen firing his weapon and then fleeing with the three other suspects.
