QUEENS — A man suffered life-threatening injuries when a gunman opened fire on him outside a Kew Gardens Hills bodega, police said.

The 46-year-old man was blasted once in the buttocks in front of 71-06 Kissena Boulevard, near 71st Avenue, following a dispute inside a deli about 9:50 p.m. Monday, the NYPD said.

He suffered life-threatening injuries, but doctors at an area hospital managed to stabilize him, police said.

The suspect, who can be seen in dramatic police footage released Tuesday, fled north on Kissena Boulevard, according to police.


The gunman is in his 30s and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, red hooded sweater, gray sweatpants and black sneakers, police said.
