Two drive-by Bronx shooters who fired on a group of people on a stoop and injured one man earlier this week remain at large, police reported.

The NYPD released on Friday night video of the shooting which occurred at 7 p.m. on June 16 in front of an apartment building at 644 Wales Ave. in Melrose.

Just before the shooting, as shown in the video, two individuals sat conversing on the stoop while a third man stood nearby on the sidewalk, leaning against a car.

Seconds later, the suspects ride up on a dirt bike, with the passenger firing shots with a handgun. The three individuals on the scene crouch down and run for cover, along with a fourth man who emerged from the apartment building and had to slide down the stoop.

The drive-by shooters fled the scene on foot eastbound along East 152nd Street, police said.

No other injuries were reported, police said.
