Neftali Ramirez, 57, is considered armed and dangerous.

Police are looking for a man who struck his victim in the head with his gun and fired a shot into the ground while on the road in Maspeth.

On Nov. 5 at around 6:30 a.m., a 55-year-old white man and Neftali Ramirez, 57, were driving on the Queens Midtown Expressway westbound when they got into a verbal dispute. After they stopped in the vicinity of Queens Midtown Expressway and 58th Street, Ramirez approached the victim’s car on foot and displayed a firearm.

Law enforcement sources said Ramirez then struck the victim in the head with the barrel of the gun. According to police, the assailant allegedly told the victim, “I’m a killer!” and shot a round into the ground before fleeing the scene.

Ramirez is described as a white-Hispanic man with brown eyes, standing 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing 165 pounds. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The 108th Precinct posted a wanted flier about the incident on its Twitter page.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or Ramirez’s whereabouts can call Detective Thomas Hirdt of the 108th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-784-5441; all calls are kept confidential.
