NYC gunman on scooter shoots in broad daylight, misses target, cops say

A gunman on a scooter opened fire in broad daylight on a Bronx street this week — just missing his target, a new video shows. 

The suspect can be seen in footage released by the NYPD while riding a blue and black scooter on DeKalb Avenue near East 212th Street in Norwood around 8 a.m. Tuesday and firing off at least one shot toward an “unknown victim” on the sidewalk, cops said. 

The would-be victim is shown ducking behind a parked car, and then quickly escaping into a building’s courtyard.
