The NYPD released video of an altercation where a suspect chased a teenager around and shot him before fleeing. This incident happened Sunday in Queens, and the gunman is still on the loose.
Sources say the victim, a 16-year-old boy, is not talking with police or helping them with the case. He has a non-life-threatening injury.
This took place out front of a 99-cent store on Merrick Boulevard near 111th Avenue in Jamaica. Video shows the victim trying to run around and hide behind a column from the suspect, who has a gun in his hand.
The teen then makes a run for it, and that’s when then the assailant shoots at him, striking him in the leg. The suspect then takes off, going the other direction.
Shootings are up almost 30% in the city, data shows.
Clique, let’s hope they catch this guy!
