THE BRONX, N.Y. (PIX11) -- Police think they know who gave a gunman the weapon he used to shoot a man in the eye in the Bronx, but are asking for the public’s help to identify the shooter.

Authorities on Sunday released elevator surveillance footage of two men connected to the Jan. 21 non-fatal shooting of a 27-year-old.

It happened about 10:40 p.m. in the back of 755 White Plains Road in the Bronx, police said.

A gun-wielding man walked up to the victim, shot him in the eye then ran into 1880 Lafayette Ave., police said.  The victim was taken to a hospital where he remains in stable condition.

Surveillance video from inside an elevator shows the unidentified gunman with a mask over his face and what appears to be a gun in his hand. He is described only as a Hispanic male in his early 20s.

Police are looking for Jonte Randolph, seen in the surveillance video getting into the elevator before the alleged shooter. He is suspected to have given the shooter the weapon.

Anyone with information in the case is urged to call NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
