Police released video on Monday night of a man wanted for a recent shooting inside a late night sandwich spot in Woodhaven that injured two patrons. We reported on the incident on Feb. 20.

Cops said the suspect burst into Rico Chimi on Atlantic Avenue to shoot a 40-year-old male inside the establishment at 12:25 a.m. on Feb. 20. A 32-year-old female was also hit in the spray of bullets.

The man was still armed when he quickly fled the establishment into a “newer model,” red, four-door sedan according to police.

Authorities say both victims were transported via EMS to Jamaica Hospital after the incident.

The male victim had gunshot wounds to his leg and hip and was admitted in stable condition and the female victim suffered gunshot wounds to her buttocks and leg. She was treated and released.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male with a light complexion standing at approximately 5 foot 7 inches tall and 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red mask, a black hooded jacket, black pants and black shoes.
