Police hope security camera footage will help the public identify and track down the gun-slinging suspects who fired shots at each other near Leavitts Park in Flushing last month.

The incident took place at 10:25 p.m. on the night of July 12 along 137th Street between 32nd Avenue and Latimer Place.

According to authorities, the suspect in the video — described as a black male wearing long shorts, a long-sleeved shirt and sneakers — was riding his bike along 137th Street when an unidentified individual driving a silver Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV fired a shot at him.

Seconds later, the bicyclist got off his bike, pulled out a handgun and fired twice at the SUV as it fled the location. The bicyclist then pedaled away eastbound on 32nd Avenue toward the Latimer Houses.

Officers from the 109th Precinct responded to 911 calls about the shots fired; no injuries were reported.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
