Cops have released video footage of two men sought for carrying out a deadly hit at a Staten Island recording studio with an assault rifle.

The suspects are wanted in connection with the Jan. 16 death of Jahade Chancey, 23, of Warren Street, who was slain at about 7:48 p.m. inside the Demonlow Studio at 937 Van Duzer St. in Fox Hills. 

The video, taken by a doorbell camera at the location, shows one of the suspects arriving on scene and pulling an assault rifle out of a black bag, then pushing the doorbell to get inside.

Seconds later, he points the assault rifle up at someone while charging into the location. The second suspect, armed with a handgun, then appears behind the rifle-toting perpetrator.

Both gunmen were gone by the time the 120th Precinct arrived on the scene. Cops found Chancey at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds to his back.

Paramedics rushed him to Staten Island University Hospital-North Campus, where he was pronounced dead.

Police did not provide a description of the two suspects.
