Police are on the lookout for a man who pulled out a firearm and shot a man in front of a Brooklyn apartment early Sunday morning.
Investigators said the unidentified suspect approached the steps of a brownstone on MacDonough Street in Bed-Stuy at around 1 a.m. when his 25-year-old victim was sitting at the building's steps.
Surveillance video shows the suspect talking to the victim, whose name has not yet been released, as people walked by the curbside.
The video then shows the suspect suddenly flashing a gun holstered in his waistband before he pulled it out and cocked it.
The armed man kept pointing the weapon towards the victim as he walked back into the sidewalk, then proceeded to fire it multiple times before running eastbound from the scene.
The victim was struck multiple times on his body before emergency workers arrive and rushed him to a local hospital. Police said he remained in stable but critical condition Monday morning.
Authorities described the suspect as a stocky man last seen wearing a T-shirt with with the number "12" on its back.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or to submit tips online.
