A teenage gunman remains at large after opening fire in broad daylight at the Baisley Park Houses in Springfield Gardens on Friday, Sept. 8.

Police from the 113th Precinct are looking for the gunman in the “reckless endangerment” incident that went down just after 3 p.m. in front of 116-80 Guy R. Brewer Boulevard, just a block away from the Baisley Pond Park Cricket Pitch, where he pulled out a black handgun. He proceeded to open fire, shooting numerous times in the direction of an unknown intended target, instead striking the back window of a parked and unoccupied vehicle at the location, according to the NYPD.

The gunman fled the location heading south toward 119th Avenue. There were no injuries as a result of the incident.

Through Sept. 3, the 113th Precinct reported 11 shootings incidents, nine less than at the same period last year, a decrease of 45%, according to the most recent CompStat report.

The NYPD released surveillance images of the gunman. He has a dark complexion, a thin build and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black backpack, black pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
