THE BRONX — The NYPD has released video of a bike-riding gunman who allegedly opened fire on an 18-year-old man in Hunts Point last month.

The suspect is shown in the video shooting the teenager three times on the corner of East 163rd Street and Southern Boulevard Sept. 23 about 3:45 a.m., police said.

The video appears to capture the suspect — described as being about 20 years old and standing about 5-feet-9-inches tall with a thin build — riding on the sidewalk toward the victim, pulling out the gun and shooting him at close range.

The gunman’s bullets pierced the teen’s left shoulder, bicep and forearm, police said. He was transported to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, where he was stable, the NYPD said.
