STATEN ISLAND — Police released a sketch Wednesday of a suspect who allegedly shot a man during a botched home invasion robbery on Staten Island last month.
While the suspect's two partners wore ski masks during the attempted robbery, the alleged shooter went barefaced, police said.
The three suspects pushed their way into 14 Wellbrook Ave., on a residential block of Emerson Hill, about 7:30 p.m. March 2, police said.
The would-be robbers ordered the four men inside the building to hit the floor, police said.
One of the victims, a 32-year-old man, tried to escape, but the barefaced suspect shot him once in the back, police said.
The three suspects then fled empty-handed, police said.
The shooting victim was taken to Richmond University Medical Center in stable condition, police said.
Police are looking for the alleged shooter, who is described as a 35-to-40-year-old man, 6 feet tall, 175 pounds, with salt-and-pepper hair and a goatee. Police are also seeking the two accomplices.
