A 75-year-old man was struck by a stray bullet in The Bronx over the weekend when a shooter on a moped opened fire in broad-daylight, cops say.
The senior was walking on East 180th Street near Daly Avenue in West Farms around 2:20 p.m. Sunday when two people rode by on the scooter, authorities said.
An image grabbed from surveillance footage and released by the NYPD late Monday shows the backseat passenger pointing a gun.
Multiple rounds were fired at “an unknown group of individuals” – with one bullet striking the elderly man in his left thigh, cops said.
Police do not believe he was the intended target.
