The man who shot three people early Sunday morning on Ridge Street in a possible drug-related altercation has been identified by the 7th Precinct. Miguel Maldonado, an ex-convict on parole, is wanted in connection with the shooting, which happened just outside 135 Ridge.

Maldonado and his cousin got in an argument with the victims at around 2am, and the assailants fled the scene. The shooter returned for revenge just a few hours later, and fired off five to six rounds from an “unknown weapon.” Initial reports suggested that two of the injured — 25 and 35 — were shot in their legs, while the third, 23, was shot twice, once in the stomach and once in the leg. However, cops now confirm that there was, in fact, a fourth victim who escaped with just a pants graze.

Maldonado has a dozen prior arrests, including one in 2007 for a non-fatal shooting in Coney Island. He served four years behind bars at Queensboro Correctional Facility for assault and was released in January 2014. His parole was to last through April 28, 2019.

Here is the wanted poster currently making the rounds.
