Manhattan

INWOOD, Manhattan — Gunfire erupted in Upper Manhattan early Monday, leaving five men shot, including the suspected gunman who was wounded by a police sergeant, authorities said.

It happened around 4 a.m. outside the 11:11 Restaurant and Lounge in the vicinity of 10th Avenue and West 211th Street in the Inwood neighborhood, according to authorities.

Police officers in the area witnessed a group involved in a “strong discussion” outside the vicinity and walked toward them, according to NYPD Chief of Patrol Juanita Holmes.

The group then walked up the block and heard shots fired, Holmes said.

Seconds later police officers flooded the area and ran toward the scene.

Exclusive surveillance video obtained by PIX11 shows the immediate aftermath after bullets were fired.

The officers ducked for cover and a sergeant later fired shots at the suspect, striking the shooter in the hip, according to police.

Four other men, ranging in age between 28 and 32, were injured as a result of the gunfire, police said. They are expected to survive.

The suspect, who police sources identified as 25-year-old Isamuel Alcantara, has a prior arrest in the city.

His firearm was recovered at the scene, Holmes said.

No police officers were injured during the incident.
