The New York Police Department (NYPD) has released a video featuring a gun-wielding assailant sitting on the back of a brawny motorcyclist firing rounds at a teenager in the Bronx, striking him twice in the leg during a late-night drive-by shooting. Cops said Monday (May 25) that they were looking for the suspects.

The incident happened at around 10:15 p.m. (EST) Friday (May 22) near 2418 University Avenue in University Heights when the gunman pulled out his weapon and opened fire. The 15-year-old victim was standing in front of the building when he was shot, New York Post reported, citing police.

The teenage boy was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital with a leg wound, where he was declared in stable condition. It was not immediately clear if he was the intended target.

Police described both the suspects as having heavy built, wearing dark-colored clothing. The bike-borne men then reportedly headed northbound.

Cops asked anyone with information regarding the crime to reach out to them.

In April, a 7-year-old boy died after he was struck by a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting in the Philadelphia suburb of Chester, Pennsylvania. The boy, identified as Sinsir Parker, was shot in the face and was pronounced dead at the scene. Residents in the area reported hearing at least 15 rounds of gunshots. Police later determined the Corvette involved in the shooting was a stolen vehicle.

In June 2019, an 11-year-old boy was killed in his sleep after assailants fired at least 22 shots targeting his family’s home early morning. The boy, identified as Kamren Cassius Jones, died at the scene after sustaining several gunshots while other members of the family escaped unscathed. Investigators said it was not the family but the house, where they moved only a few months earlier, was the intended target.
