MANHATTAN — A bike-riding gunman who shot four people on West 14th Street on Memorial Day weekend turned himself in Thursday afternoon, police said.

Ricardo Daniell, 31, was partying at a club early in the morning on May 27 prior to being seen on video getting on a bike before he opened fire on four men standing in front of 318 W. 14th St. near Eighth Avenue.

A 41-year-old man was critically injured and a 42-year-old man was hit in the chest but was in stable condition after the shooting. Another 42-year-old man was shot in the back and 35-year-old man suffered a graze wound.

Investigators were still not sure what sparked the shooting, an NYPD spokesman said.

Police also arrested Paola Betances, 22, in connection with the incident shortly after it occurred and charged her with drug possession.

It was not clear how she is connected to Daniell.

The shooter turned himself into the NYPD's Sixth Precinct at about 2:45 p.m. Thursday and was expected to be charged in the shooting.
