Cops Hunt Whereabouts Of Ridgewood Gunman

Police are searching for a crazed triggerman who opened fire at a Ridgewood intersection on July 27.

Cops said the gunman was standing on Cornelia Street near Wyckoff Avenue in Ridgewood at about 4:15 p.m. when he suddenly raised his pistol and fired off several rounds.

“He didn’t appear to be aiming at anyone in particular,” a law enforcement source said.
No one was injured in the gunfire, an NYPD spokesperson said. At least one round struck a silver Nissan Sentra that was parked at the intersection, a police source said.

Police are reviewing surveillance footage recovered near the scene that shows the gunman standing with two other men when he opened fire. The gunman and the two men are seen moments later running on Wyckoff Avenue near Halsey Street, an NYPD spokesperson said.

The two other men are described a male Hispanic, 18-20 years old, police said.
