Brooklyn detectives continue to search for two suspects who shot and slashed a man in a bloody attack Tuesday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources said the assault happened at about 4:48 p.m. on Aug. 29 in front of a grocery store at 1202 Bay Ridge Ave., at 12th Avenue, in Dyker Heights.

Officers from the 68th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the incident, found the 28-year-old male victim shot once in the torso. He also had a slash wound to his chest.

The circumstances leading up to the bloody attack are not yet known, sources familiar with the case said Wednesday morning.

EMS units rushed the victim to Maimonides Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.

Meanwhile, detectives are looking for the two perpetrators who were seen fleeing the location inside a gray Honda Accord. Both were described as men with medium complexions; no further descriptions of their appearance were available.

The investigation remains ongoing, police said.
