Police have released a photo of a suspect wanted for attempted murder after he allegedly shot a man multiple times at the Queensbridge Houses NYCHA complex in Long Island City Sunday.

The alleged shooter, who was riding a Citi Bike with another suspect, allegedly cycled up to a 26-year-old man near 40-03 10th St. at around 9:45 p.m. and blasted him in the face, left arm, and right leg, according to police.

The shooter and his accomplice then fled the scene eastbound on 41st Avenue, police said.

The victim was transported by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital where he remains in critical condition, police said.

Video footage released on Citizen Sunday night captures police canvassing a basketball court at the NYCHA complex shortly after the shooting.

The NYPD did not provide a motive for the shooting.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/
