Police are now offering a reward for information in connection with the road rage shooting on Clinton Street last month that injured a 75-year-old bystander.

At approximately 11:55am on February 16, a motorist driving what was reported to be a black BMW sedan turned right onto Clinton Street from Delancey, narrowly missing a pedestrian. Cops said the near-collision resulted in a heated, verbal exchange. The suspect exited the vehicle, produced a handgun, and fired multiple times. He then fled the scene in his BMW.

The 75-year-old woman hit with an errant bullet survived.

The 7th Precinct also released an updated surveillance photo showing the perp without a face mask. The bounty for more info on the suspect is $2,500.
