NYC: Gunman shoots man in Brooklyn apartment building hallway

A bandanna-clad shooter was caught on video blasting another man in the back in a crowded apartment building hallway, police said Thursday.

The shooter, wearing a light-blue bandanna tight around his head, can be seen lurking in the stairwell of a building on Kings Highway near E. 98th St. in Brownsville, Brooklyn, as a group of people pass at about 11:20 p.m. Tuesday.

The video cuts to a different angle, showing the man rush past two people and up to the 35-year-old victim, who’s toting a black bag in his left hand. He taps a gun to the man’s head. The victim tries to flee, and the gunman shoots and hops backwards.

Cops said the victim was shot in the back and grazed in the shoulder. He remains in critical but stable condition. The shooter remains on the loose.
