Police are searching for a man seen on surveillance video shooting a gun at the Sheepshead Bay Houses on Friday.
The incident captured on video happened Friday around 1 a.m. in front of 2953 Avenue W.
The video shows someone holding a red cup with a dark-colored hoodie walking, then what appears to be a woman and a child running to the door of the building as the man shoots.
The woman is seen opening the door as the child runs inside, and the person in the hoodie continues to fire the gun.
Police say it was a ShotSpotter alert that notified them that shots were fired. It is unclear if that person was shooting at someone else, and is also unclear what was happening in the moments prior.
Police say it does not appear that anyone was hurt.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
