A 55-year-old man was hit in the chest by a stray bullet while driving in broad daylight in Brooklyn, police said Thursday.
The victim was driving north on Rochester Avenue and crossing the Eastern Parkway intersection in a van just before 4 p.m. Wednesday in Crown Heights when bullets flew, police officers said.
Police believe the gunman was walking with a woman when he spotted four men and opened fire on them – but instead hit the passing driver.
The bullet instead went through the uninvolved driver’s window, police said.
The motorist was taken to Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center, where he was recorded in stable condition.
The suspect ran away on foot and fled to the Crown Heights-Utica Avenue subway station.
Police released surveillance footage showing him inside the station – and described him as a man in his 20s with a dark complexion, thin build and long black hair.
He was last seen in a gray hooded sweatshirt and black bubble jacket with “The North Face” logo embroidered on the front left chest.
