Gunman opens fire on busy NYC street, hitting boy: video

A young gunman opened fire on a busy Bronx street over the weekend, beating a 17-year-old boy, new videos show.

The suspect – shown walking with a woman who also appears to be a teenager – pulled out a pistol and fired multiple shots as he crossed Grant Avenue at the intersection of East 169th Street in Claremont Village at 6 p.m. Sunday , according to police and the clip released late Monday.

The teenage victim was hit in the left shoulder and taken to the BronxCare Health System, where he was listed in stable condition, police officers said.

It was not initially clear whether he was the intended target because, according to the police, there were many people on the street.

Just as the suspect opened fire, a person wearing a dark jacket and red bag crossed the street and didn’t appear to flinch, the clip shows.

The suspected gunman and his accomplice then ran away, footage shows.

The teenager was one of eight people shot dead in seven separate incidents across the city on Sunday, police said.

A day later, the NYPD began deploying more night patrols to curb gun crime — part of the first phase of Mayor Eric Adams’ Summer Violence Prevention Plan.

The additional patrols are intended to increase the department’s reporting between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. when “nearly half of our shootings happen,” NYPD department chief Ken Corey said last week.
