LOWER MANHATTAN — A gunman shot an innocent bystander sitting on a stoop in Lower Manhattan Friday evening, police said Saturday.

Surveillance video shows the suspect standing with another man outside a building on Pearl Street, near the Brooklyn Bridge, just after 6:15 p.m. when he pulled out a gun, fired one round and fled.

A 46-year-old man sitting on the stairs in front of the building heard the gunshot and then felt pain in his left arm, police said. He was treated at a hospital and released.

Police said the victim was an innocent bystander.

Investigators described the suspect as a man last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants and white sneakers.
