Psycho Shoots Up Street

By Dan Gesslein
BRONX, NEW YORK, June 29- It was a miracle no one was killed when a gunman opened fire up and down a Soundview street on Wednesday. Now cops are asking for the public’s help to catch the psycho shooter.
Police surveillance video shows the gunman opening fire without regard on a Soundview street. Other bystanders are seen on the tape taking cover across the street as the gunman fired.
At around 11:30 p.m. two men was standing in front of 150 Leland Avenue when the suspect approached them and started shooting wildly. As the victims tried to run away, the gunman chased after them continuing to shoot as he ran. 
The victims managed to escape the shooter, hopped into a cab and went to Einstein Hospital. They were treated for gunshot wounds to the elbow and knee.
The gunman is described simply as a black male last seen wearing a plaid shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers. 
Anyone with information is urged to call CRIMESTOPPERS (800) 577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
