BUSHWICK – Police are looking for a man who fired a gun at a 27-year old inside a Broadway deli last Friday in Bushwick.

The suspect entered the establishment at 1717 Broadway, near the Chauncey JMZ stop, at 1:30 am on Friday. Police said he fired at least one shot from a handgun at his target—who wasn’t hit.

In the surveillance video below, the suspect can be seen exchanging words with someone, before firing one shot. When he does, a glass bottle thrown from off camera smashes into the door as he ducks out.

An investigation is ongoing, though police said the victim was described as “non-cooperative” in their efforts.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
