Detectives are looking for the suspected shooter who fled the scene inside a black Jeep Cherokee, authorities said. No arrests have been made in the case.

Earlier on Saturday, two men were shot and critically injured in front of an apartment building at 168 Bond St. in Boerum Hill — not far from the Barclays Center — at about 12:20 p.m. on Nov. 12.

Officers from the 84th Precinct found both victims at the scene: a 26-year-old man shot in the face, and a 23-year-old man wounded in the torso.

According to law enforcement sources, both victims entered a vehicle parked at the location when an unidentified shooter approached and opened fire on them.
