Shocking footage has been released of a man being riddled with bullets and pistol whipped in a New York City grocery store.
NYPD said the suspect opened fire on a 37-year-old man in the Bronx shop, wounding him in the head, legs and chest, at 1.10am local time on Saturday.
The surveillance video, released by NYPD, shows the gunman carrying a beverage while walking towards his prostrate victim pumping rounds into him.
He then strikes the victim several times with the silver handgun before fleeing. Witnesses step over the injured man as he squirms on the floor in agony.
The two had been arguing over which of them was the star of an amateur rap video they were filming outside the shop, according to reports.
“They were fighting over who’s the star, who’s better,” the store’s owner told the New York Daily News.
“They were drunk. They spit at each other then one guy pulled out a gun and shot the other guy five times.”
The victim is in hospital in a critical condition, while the suspect remains at large, NYPD said.
