Cops are looking for a suspect who fatally shot a man during a drive-by in Manhattan last week.

Authorities say that at 9 p.m. on July 14, 19-year-old Kenneth Azuris was standing outside of 67 West 109th Street when a white sedan pulled up to him. A passenger in the front seat of the car fired multiple shots at Azuris, striking him on the right side of his head.

The vehicle then fled the scene in an unknown direction. Azuris was taken to Mt. Sinai/St. Luke’s Hospital, where he ultimately succumbed to his injuries on July 20.

On July 21, the NYPD released video of the drive-by taken from nearby surveillance footage.
