THE BRONX, N.Y. — A minor narrowly escaped being shot as two people exchanged gunfire on a Bronx sidewalk on Friday, video of the shootout shows.

Police were called to the scene on Webster Avenue near Claremont Park around 4:10 p.m.

Two individuals appeared to exchange words on the sidewalk before they each pulled out a gun and opened fire, discharging several rounds before fleeing on foot in different directions, surveillance video shows.

As bullets flew, a young person who was with one of the individuals ran for cover behind a structure next to a stoop. The individual who was with the young person then returned and led them away by the hand.

Police said they’re unsure of the minor’s age, but they believe they are a family member of the individual they were with.

No one was injured during the incident, police said. 

The NYPD released surveillance video of the shooting Saturday morning.
