New York Daily News: MANHATTAN – A video released by NYPD, captures the moment a gunman opened fire in Times Square on Sunday, June 28, 2021.
 
Shocking video released by police Monday captures the moment a gunman opened fire in Times Square, wounding a Marine tourist as bystanders scrambled for safety.

The shooter held the gun in his right hand even as he fled the scene on Broadway near W. 45th St., outside the Minskoff Theatre, about 5:15pm Sunday, the video shows. He has not been caught or identified.

Police said the latest shooting — just steps away from where a little girl was hit by gunfire last month — was triggered by an argument between two men, possibly street vendors or performers.

The slug ricocheted and struck the 21-year-old victim in the back, sources said. Medics took Samuel Poulin in stable condition to Bellevue Hospital.

Poulin, who recently graduated The Citadel, the military college in Charleston, SC, with a Marine Corps commission, was visiting the city from upstate with his family, including his wife.

The accused gunman, Farrakhan Muhammad, 31, was later arrested in Florida.

Cops are asking the public’s help identifying the gunman in Sunday’s shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
