NEW YORK — An alarming video shows a FedEx driver walking out of a Brownsville apartment building as a gunman opens fire.
The 44-year-old driver was delivering packages to 395 Livonia Ave. in the Van Dyke Houses when he was hit by gunfire around 11:15 a.m. – in what appeared to be a targeted attack from the video released by the NYPD Tuesday.
The video, tweeted out by Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison, shows the gunman holding the door for a woman and the FedEx driver, pulling out his firearm after the driver exits and opening fire, New York Post reported.
