suspect rides bike as he flees scene

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.

Anyone with information in regards to the homicide is asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
