Man Who Shot 4 Outside Harlem Deli Is Sought By Police

Police shared video of last month’s shooting outside a Lenox Avenue deli that injured four young men. An unidentified gunman is sought

HARLEM, NY — Police asked for help this week identifying a man accused of shooting four people outside a Harlem deli last month.

The shooting happened around 10:16 p.m. on Nov. 15, as the four victims, all men in their twenties, were standing outside the 141 Grocery bodega on the corner of West 141st Street and Lenox Avenue.

Video shared by police shows an unidentified man approaching from the corner and firing shots at the group as they stand outside the deli entrance. Two of the men run for cover, while two others collapse in front of the store.

All men survived the shooting: a 23-year-old, 22-year-old and another 22-year-old were taken to Harlem Hospital for gunshot wounds to the right leg, right leg and left arm, respectively. A 21-year-old man was taken to Mt. Sinai St. Luke’s for a wound to the buttocks.

The footage reveals little about the gunman, who appears only as a dark-clad figure who flees immediately after firing the shots.

Police asked anyone with information to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). People can also submit tips online or on Twitter, @NYPDTips.
