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.

The NYPD released the above footage in hopes the public could help identify the shooter. He was described as a man wearing a black balaclava, or head covering, and all-black clothing.

Submit tips to police by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, downloading the NYPD Crime Stoppers mobile app, or texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. Spanish-speaking callers are asked to dial 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
