Police believe a gunman who fired into a Manhattan barbershop on Tuesday afternoon was aiming for a 12-year-old boy. The boy was not injured.

The incident took place around 2:15 p.m. on April 11th, outside 927 Columbus Avenue between 105th and 106th Streets. The NYPD says the gunman fired one shot at the boy "following an exchange of words."

The suspect, who fled north on Columbus Avenue, was described as being 5'9" and was last seen wearing a black shirt and blue shorts. Cops released a surveillance video showing the man walking on the sidewalk, stopping and then taking a gun out of his shorts to fire:

Nobody was hit, and the gunman ran away. The barbershop's owner told WABC 7, "There were two young men in the store, one was getting a haircut another young man entered and fired two shots. I don't know what happened, after when I saw the gun, I threw myself on the floor."
