Man, 21, shot by gunman on apparent CitiBike, video shows

A 21-year-old man was blasted in the leg by a gunman riding what appears to be a CitiBike in Harlem late last month, video released early Friday shows.

The victim was crossing the street, between parked vehicles, around 12:45 a.m. May 24 on West 143rd Street near Lenox Avenue when the bicyclist approached and fired a shot, striking him in the leg, police said.


The victim is shown running off with two other people on the sidewalk.

The suspect took off on a blue and black bike that appeared to have the same design as a CitiBike, the blurry footage shows.

The victim was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition, where he was treated and later released.

The suspect remained at large Friday.
