GREENWICH VILLAGE, Manhattan — The NYPD has released new photos of a man and woman they’re looking for after a man was shot on a Manhattan subway platform earlier in October.

Back on Oct. 18, the 24-year-old victim was urinating off the northbound No. 1 train platform in the 14th Street station in Greenwich Village when the unidentified man, accompanied by the unidentifed woman, began a verbal dispute, officials said.

The unidentified man took out a gun and fired multiple times, striking the victim in the neck and in the back, according to police.

The wounded man walked into a local hospital and was “stable,” authorities said.

Police initially described his injuries as serious, but a spokesperson later said the victim may only have been grazed by the bullets.

Officers said they received a 911 call just before 6 p.m. about the shooting.

The shooter and the woman fled the scene.

Police released the above photos of the people wanted for questioning.

They described the man as having a medium build and last seen wearing a black bubble jacket, camouflage pants, black boots, a black du-rag, and seen holding a blue-string backpack.

The woman was described as having a thin build, shoulder-length curly hair and last seen wearing a multi-colored jacket, pink leggings, black boots, a surgical mask on her chin, and seen carrying a black purse.
