A 41-year-old woman was wounded by a stray bullet when a gunman opened fire during a clash on a Bronx street over the weekend, cops said this week.
The innocent bystander was shot in the torso in front of a grocery store on East 180th Street near Bathgate Avenue in Belmont around 10 p.m. Sunday, police said.
Two men had been fighting nearby and one of them pulled out a gun and fired at the other — accidentally striking the uninvolved woman, cops said.
The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.
The NYPD released surveillance images late Monday of the still-at-large suspect — who took off in a red four-door sedan, heading east on East Tremont Avenue, after the shooting.
Photos show the suspected gunman wearing a camouflage baseball hat, heavy fur-lined winter coat, camouflage shirt, camouflage pants and tan boots on the street and inside a convenience store — with a third image showing his getaway car.
In a similar incident early Tuesday, a stray bullet hit the windshield of a delivery van being driven by a 32-year-old man in Midtown, shattering the glass, cops said.
The shooter had been aiming at a bicyclist on West 36th Street near Seventh Avenue at around 1:40 a.m. when he hit the van instead, police said.
Glass from the van’s shattered windshield struck the driver, causing a minor cut on his face, cops said.
He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
No one else was hurt.
The shooter took off, heading west on West 36th Street.
No arrests have been made.
