HELL’S KITCHEN — A disgruntled former Intrepid Museum employee made a YouTube video in which he said that all of the museum’s security staff "should be shot," the NYPD said.

The unidentified employee was fired from the museum on Pier 86, at West 46th Street and 12th Avenue, more than a year ago, police said.

A YouTube video he created shows him making the threat against all of the museum's security workers, the NYPD said.

A museum employee reported the video to police on Nov. 16.

No one had been arrested in connection with the incident as of Monday, and a spokesman for the Intrepid Museum declined to comment on the matter Tuesday.

Other notable crimes in the Midtown North Precinct include:

► A 19-year-old man from The Bronx was walking in front of 524 W. 59th St., between 10th and 11th avenues, around 2:15 p.m. on Nov. 15 when a man he didn’t know pulled out a blue Taser and shocked him in the neck, leaving him in pain, the NYPD said. The victim refused medical attention at the scene.

► A 63-year-old man from The Bronx was working at a newsstand in front of 800 10th Ave., at the corner of West 54th Street, around 11:25 a.m. on Nov. 15 when two men approached the stand brandishing a knife and said, “Give me a pack of cigarettes,” police said. When the newsstand clerk refused, the men grabbed three trays of candy valued at $200 and fled southbound on 10th Avenue.

► A 29-year-old woman returned home from work around 6:50 p.m. and discovered someone had broken into her apartment on West 51st Street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, and stolen $450 in cash from an envelope under her bed, police said. The thief or thieves opened the woman’s rear apartment window and shifted her bed out of its normal place, the NYPD said.
