BRONX, NEW YORK, April 24- Police are looking for the gunmen who opened fire on a male victim, striking him in the arm inside a Kingsbridge Heights building.

Officers from the 50th Precinct and paramedics responded to the seventh-floor hallway of 2835 Webb Avenue, at 12:36 p.m., on April 20, where the unidentified male victim was discovered with a gunshot wound to his arm.

The victim, who one source stated lived in the building, was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.

Police would canvas the area for the two suspects, both wearing hooded jackets, who fled northbound on Webb Avenue towards the confines of the 52nd Precinct.

Detectives were in the process of obtaining surveillance video from buildings in the area, in an attempt to identify the perpetrators.

According to 50th Precinct commander, Deputy Inspector Kevin Burke, police have video of the two suspects entering the building and are working to identify the individuals, but no arrests have been made at this time.
