The yet unnamed 37 year old victim suffered multiple gun shots following the attack, which saw five people step over the man and failing to help him as he lay on the ground bleeding.
The suspect, who was wearing a red polo shirt, jeans and a baseball cap can be seen calmly shooting the victim at least five times, then pistol whipping the man as he laid on the ground. The footage then shows a further five men, who were in the store at the same time calmly step over the victim as they leave the shop one by one.
Shop owner Ali Abdul, who witnessed the attack told the press, “They were fighting over who’s the star, who’s better. They were drunk. They spit at each other then one guy pulled out a gun and shot the other guy five times.”
Paramedics arrived quickly to the scene in the Bronx and the victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital for treatment, he remains in critical condition.
