CROTONA, the Bronx — Shocking video released by the NYPD shows a man open fire on a busy Bronx sidewalk on Wednesday, shooting a man multiple times before running off.

According to police, the shooting occurred just before 10 a.m. in front of a shop on East Tremont Avenue, near the corner of Crotona Avenue, in the Crotona section.

Security footage shows an unidentified man standing casually on the crowded sidewalk, holding a drink in one hand and a concealed gun in the other.

As the 44-year-old victim walks up, suddenly the man pulls out the firearm, point it at him and fires once.

As the victim starts to run away, the man fires another round, striking him a second time before fleeing the scene.

The victim was shot in the left wrist and left leg, according to police. He was transported by EMS to a nearby hospital in what police called “stable” condition.

No arrests had been made as of Friday morning.

The NYPD released the video in hopes the public could help identify or locate the gunman.
