Police have released video of the suspect wanted in connection to a shooting in East New York.

The NYPD released the surveillance video late Wednesday night.

In it, police say, is the man they believe pulled the trigger.

He is seen walking down the street in the video. It also shows a white SUV which is what investigators say they believe he fled the scene in.

The shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday in front of the deli at 2481 Pitkin Ave.
