The NYPD has released a video of a suspect who is believed to be behind a Brooklyn shooting that left four people injured over the weekend. 

Police say that at 8:11 p.m. on July 17, an unknown man fired a gun multiple times at the southeast corner of Livonia Avenue and Rockaway Avenue, striking four people before fleeing to parts unknown.

Upon arrival, officers found a 24-year-old man who had been shot in the torso and a 59-year-old man who had been shot in the leg. Both victims were taken by paramedics to Brookdale Hospital. Police also found a 16-year-old with a gunshot wound to his head — the teen was taken to Maimonides Hospital by paramedics.

Those three victims are all listed in stable condition. A fourth victim, a 34-year-old man, was later found with a graze wound to his back, but he refused medical attention. 

The suspect was initially seen on surveillance footage at 7 p.m. riding a scooter in front of 65 Sackman Street. The NYPD released video and photos of the suspect on July 20:

The suspect is described as a man with a dark complexion, a thin build and a large, dark Afro. He was last seen wearing dark-colored sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt with multiple patches and sneakers.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
