The NYPD has released surveillance footage of a suspect who they believe was involved in a rush-hour shooting at the Utica Avenue A/C subway station entrance in Bed-Stuy on Tuesday evening. Two men, ages 27 and 45, were shot shortly after 5:00 p.m. as evening commuters streamed out of the station onto the corner of Fulton Street and Utica Avenue.

According to the NYPD, the suspect shot the 27-year-old victim in the right arm, torso, and inner right thigh. The 45-year-old victim was shot in the back. Both men were taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, and the motivation for the shooting is still under investigation.

The suspect appears in the bodega surveillance footage below, wearing a light-grey sweatshirt and sweatpants. The NY Times referenced this footage in its initial reportage of the shooting:

A police official on the scene said the shooting occurred after a dispute between the 27-year-old and another person outside a bodega on the corner of Malcolm X Boulevard and Fulton Street.

Detectives talked to the workers at the bodega and reviewed security footage on the store’s monitor that showed a small figure in a gray hood walking up to the counter. A worker at the bodega told reporters that the person believed to have opened fire came into the store before the shooting and tried to break a $20 bill.
