Detroit police are working to find a gunman caught on camera shooting a driver last month on the city’s east side.
Surveillance footage released Friday shows the victim entering a Ford F-150 pickup at about noon Feb. 19 in the 300 block of Chalmers when a black SUV pulled up across the street.
As the 48-year-old driver of the pickup backs out of the driveway, someone wearing a gray hooded jacket and blue jeans is seen jumping out, rushing toward him with a gun and firing several shots at the driver’s side.
The driver ends up crashing into the front of the house as the gunman returns to his SUV and pulls off. The victim was critically wounded but survived, police said.
The suspect is described as 35-40 years old, 5-foot-7, with a dark complexion and thin build.
He was last seen driving a black Chevy Suburban with duct tape on the driver’s side mirror, tinted windows, a temporary sticker in the rear window and broken brake light.
Anyone who recognizes him is asked to call the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-5940. Anonymous tips can also be submitted through Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
