Police are searching for the scooter-riding gunman who opened fire on a group of people in the Bronx, leaving one person wounded.
Surveillance footage showed four men sitting near a stoop on Wales Ave. near E. 152nd St. in Woodstock in the Bronx, New York City, at around 7pm on Thursday when two men on a scooter rode by.
The one riding in the back of the scooter, suddenly stood up, pulled out a gun and began shooting.
The group quickly scattered, with two dropping to the floor and one man even rolling under the car.
A 28-year-old male, whose name was not released, was shot once in the left leg and was rushed to Jacobi Hospital. He has been treated and since released, The Daily News reported.
An NYPD police spokesperson told DailyMail.com ‘they are looking at all avenues on why shooting occurred.’
‘It is unclear at this time if it was gang related or a targeted shooting,’ the police spokesperson said. ‘It is under investigation.’
On Saturday, police released the surveillance footage and are seeking the public’s help in locating the shooter. A reward of up to $3,500 is being offered.
