This gunman got away on two wheels.
The NYPD released pictures on Monday of a bicyclist wanted for fatally shooting a man on a Jamaica street a little more than two weeks ago.
At approximately 9:37 p.m. on July 25, authorities said, the unidentified man shot 23-year-old Naveed Hanif in front of a location on 157th Street. After a single gunshot struck Hanif in the back, the suspect fled the scene on a bicycle.
Officers from the 103rd Precinct responded to a 911 call about the shooting. Paramedics rushed the wounded Hanif to Jamaica Hospital, where he was officially announced deceased.
According to a source familiar with the investigation, the shooting may have been related to a debt that Hanif owed.
The suspected shooter is described as a black male, who was last seen wearing a doorag.
The investigation is still ongoing.
