New York Police Department, NYPD, has released a graphic video of two masked gunmen who were caught on video pumping several bullets into a man as he tried to get into a cab, police said Wednesday.
The NYPD released video Wednesday of the Monday evening violence in which a 28-year-old victim was shot five times. He survived the attack and was in stable condition.

Video posted on Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison’s Twitter feed shows the duo rush out of a red sedan on Vermont Ave. near Livonia Ave. in East New York, and shoot three times.
The footage shows the gunmen shoot three times. It then cuts to several men running back into the red car and a second vehicle behind it, a white Infiniti SUV with stolen Pennsylvania license plates, cops said.
Medics took the victim to Brookdale Hospital.
The NYPD said it is looking for more information from the public about the shooting, or the vehicles, to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
