The NYPD is searching for a gunman who allegedly shot two people on Steinway Street in Astoria early Sunday morning.

Police from the 114th Precinct are looking for the suspect who was wearing a distinctive T-shirt just before 4 a.m. on Oct. 3 when he opened fire multiple times with his handgun in front of 28-48 Steinways Street, police said.

A 29-year-old man was struck in the back and a 22-year-old man was shot in the right hip, according to the NYPD. The gunman fled on foot southbound on Steinway and the two victims were able to make it to Elmhurst Hospital Center by “private means,” police said, adding that they were both listed in stable condition.

The NYPD released surveillance photos and videos of the suspect wearing a dark T-shirt with National Basketball Association written across the back over a logo for Louis Vuitton. He was wearing torn jeans and dark sneakers.

No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
