Cops were looking for the gunman who opened fire on an injured a man during a dispute on the streets of Jamaica last month.

According to police, a 29-year-old man was at the intersection of Archer Avenue and Parsons Boulevard Oct. 10 at 6:45 p.m. when he got into an argument with the suspect. The altercation turned violent, authorities said, when the perpetrator pulled out a gun and shot the man in the right leg.

Following the gunfire, the suspect fled in an unknown direction.
