CROWN HEIGHTS -

Two people were injured Friday night after a fight escalated into a shooting in Crown Heights.

Surveillance video from a deli shows 25-year-old Baruch Stanislas engaging in a fight. The argument moves off camera, and that's when police say he pulled out a gun and fired multiple rounds.

Police say Stanislas' intended target, a 21-year-old man, escaped unharmed, but a bullet did strike a woman in the hip.

That woman was hospitalized and is in stable condition.

A 19-year-old man was also struck by a bullet in the leg.

The cause of the initial fight is unknown.

Stanislas is charged with attempted second-degree murder and assault with a weapon.
