Police detectives in New York City are looking for a man who opened fire on a street in the Bronx on Friday afternoon, sending several people running for their lives.

The NYPD released security camera video showing the gunman, armed with what appears to be a revolver, approach a group of people near 1155 Gerard Avenue in the Bronx and fire three shots.

The video shows several people, including a child, scattering away from the gunman, who then turns around and runs away.
