Two men hurt when gunman fires into crowd in Harlem

Two men were hurt when a gunman fired into a Harlem crowd, police said.

The shooter had been arguing with a rival on West 116th Street near Malcolm X Boulevard Thursday evening when he walked away from the dispute — but when he returned around 9 p.m., a group of several men surrounded him, video shows.

He then fired his gun into the crowd — hitting one man, 25, in the stomach and another, 19, in the left foot, cops said.

Both victims were taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s hospital in stable condition, cops said. It wasn’t clear whether either man was the intended target.

The gunman took off on West 116th Street toward Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, cops said.

He is described as in his 20s, about 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was last seen wearing grey sneakers, dark pants and a black Jordan hooded sweatshirt.
