Detectives are looking for a CitiBike-riding gunman responsible for a Brooklyn shooting last week that left a 28-year-old man injured.
On Wednesday morning, the NYPD released a photo of the two-wheeled gunslinger sought for the armed assault that occurred in broad daylight, at 12:58 p.m. on Jan. 6, in the area of Dumont and Euclid Avenues in Cypress Hills, just steps away from the Cypress Hills playground.
According to law enforcement sources, the perpetrator approached the victim as he sat inside his vehicle located near the intersection. Sources familiar with the case said the suspect and victim engaged in a verbal altercation, though the cause of the dispute remains unknown at this time.
The argument turned violent, cops said, when the suspect proceeded to pull out a firearm and opened fire. The gunman fired seven times, striking the victim once in the hip. After the attack, he fled in an unknown direction.
Officers from the 75th Precinct responded to the incident. EMS rushed the man to a local hospital in stable condition. No other injuries were reported.
As shown, the suspect wore a black bubble jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt, along with gray sweatpants and black sneakers, while pedaling a CitiBike near the shooting location.
