Cops need the public’s help in finding the gunman who shot a 25-year-old man in the stomach on a Bronx street Black Friday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources said the shooting took place at 2:10 p.m. on Nov. 29 in front of an apartment house on East 166th Street near Union Avenue.

According to authorities, the shooter pulled up in a white BMW, then exited the vehicle and ran at the victim, who stood outside the location.

Cops said the gunman fired several rounds at the victim, striking him once in the chest. After wounding the man, the shooter returned to his BMW and fled in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 42nd Precinct and EMS responded to the incident. Paramedics brought the injured man to a local hospital, where he was listed in serious but stable condition.

The NYPD released on Saturday a security camera photo of the shooter and his getaway car, which had New Jersey plates.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website or send a message on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
