NYC woman shot in her home by gunman

NYC woman shot in her home by gunman

Wild video released by the NYPD Wednesday night shows the moment a hooded gunman shot up a Queens house earlier this week, wounding an innocent bystander who was in her apartment when the gunfire erupted.

The footage shows a gunman, wearing red pants and a black, hooded sweatshirt unload a barrage of bullets from a handgun late Sunday night near Coombs Street and 141st Avenue in Springfield Gardens, police said.

A 52-year-old woman who was inside on the ground floor of a nearby house was grazed once in the arm by one of the bullets, which blasted into her home, cops said.

Police believe one suspect acted as a lookout while two gunmen — including the one captured on video — shot at the home during the incident.

It’s unclear why the trio targeted the area. The innocent bystander was taken to Queens Hospital Center in stable condition after being grazed by the bullet.
