This isn’t an easy video to watch, so be warned. The footage below shows a man roaming around New York City shooting innocent pedestrians. The New York Police Department is now hunting for the suspect who opened fire on innocent people at random on July 3. The incident occurred on 41 New Lots Avenue in New York City.
The shooting is understood to have taken place at around 7 p.m. on the day before Independence Day, wounding one woman, and killing one man.
NYPD released footage of the man to help with his identification. NYPD Chief of Detective Rodney Harrison asked for help from people on social media.
“Earlier this morning, police officers from the 73rd Precinct responded to a 911 call of a male and female shot in front of 41 New Lots Avenue,” he said.

“When they arrived, they discovered a male with a gunshot wound to the head and a female with multiple gunshot wounds.”
Harrison said the male was pronounced dead at the hospital, and that anybody who has any information pertaining to the incident, or who recognizes the man in the video, should reach out to the Crime Stoppers Hotline on 1-800-577-TIPS.
It comes at a time when radical left-wing Democrats are pushing for the New York Police Department to be completely defunded. Mayor Bill de Blasio has already pledged to strip away $1 billion in funding from the department, and a team of 600 plainclothes officers have already been made redundant in a scheme designed to appeal to the most radical left-wing politicians in the city like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Crime is skyrocketing in New York City, innocent people are dying, and police officers are being demonized by Democrats. To top it off, they’re losing their jobs, and nobody has come up with an alternative that can protect people from crime.
Do you think NYC is safe?
