SEE IT: Gunman opens fire at rival as child scrambles to get inside Brooklyn NYCHA apartment building

2020-07-11

A masked gunman opened fire on a rival outside a Brooklyn housing project as a panicked woman and child scrambled to get inside to safety, startling video released by cops Tuesday shows.

The 11-second clip shows the gunman, wearing a black hoodie and black surgical mask, taking aim and firing at someone in the distance at about 12:45 a.m. Friday outside of a Sheepshead Bay Houses tower on Avenue W near Nostrand Ave.

As the man fires, a woman and small child cower behind him as they hustle inside the building, the video shows.

The gunman follows the woman and child into the building a second later, firing off another round at his rival before entering.

Police said no one was hit by gunfire.

Another part of the video shows the man walking with a red Solo cup, as if returning from a party, with the gun tucked in his waistband.

An argument between the gunman and another man occurred outside the building just before the shooting, police said.

Cops are asking the public’s help identifying the gunman and tracking him down.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
