    The New York Police Department (NYPD) Crime Stoppers Program on Sunday released surveillance camera footage of a shooting that took place on Sheffield Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, as a means of including the public in the search for the gunman.

    In the video, the victim, a 21-year-old man, appears to be chatting with another person on Sheffield Avenue, near Hegeman Avenue on the morning after 4 July, the US Independence Day, at around 2:55 a.m. The suspect approached the victim from behind.

    Using a handgun, the attacker shoots the victim twice, once in the back and once in the left shoulder. The victim reportedly survived.

    The suspect, described as a 22-year-old, light-skinned male wearing a light-colored long sleeve shirt, light colored pants and a fishing hat, is now wanted by the NYPD for the shooting and for assault.

    Brooklyn recorded 49 shootings on 4 July Independence Day, according to The New York Post.

    As of 1 August, the city has seen 777 shooting incidents, surpassing the number of shootings recorded during 2019.
