Police are looking for a man who was caught on camera ultimately failing to gun down a woman at her home in South Ozone Park on Friday evening.

Authorities say that at 6:40 p.m. on July 19, an unknown man with a black shirt covering his face approached a 45-year-old woman in front of her home, located in the vicinity of 109th Street and 109th Avenue. When the suspect held up a gun and tried to fire it at the woman, the gun did not fire.

After trying and failing to get the gun to fire a second time, the suspect fled the scene on foot southbound on 109th Street and then westbound on 109th Avenue.
