Shooting on Henry Street Leaves Man with Ankle Wound
A man opened fire on the Lower East Side late Friday night, injuring one person.
Surveillance footage from Henry and Montgomery Streets at 11:43pm shows the suspect exit a car and start shooting. Five rounds shot, according to eyewitnesses. Cops say that one of the rounds hit the 32-year-old victim in the left foot, and that he walked himself to the hospital.
Rather then get back into the getaway car, the assailant fled on foot.
The police report states that the victim was at the scene, heard the shots, then felt a sharp pain in his foot.
It’s unclear at the moment whether the suspect knew the victim. The crime is still under investigation.
