BOERUM HILL, Brooklyn — The NYPD on Tuesday released chilling video of a gunman opening fire on a Brooklyn street, wounding a man and forcing a woman with a baby stroller to flee.
Police said it happened just before 9 a.m. Monday when an unidentified masked man fired several shots at another man, near the corner of Wyckoff and Hoyt streets.
Authorities said the 53-year-old victim was struck in the right foot. He was treated for his injuries at an area hospital, police said.
Surveillance video shows bullets fly as a woman pushing a child in a stroller stands nearby and another man runs in the opposite direction after entering the intersection.
