The gunfire erupted after the shooter, who was on foot and crossing Clinton St. at Delancey St., argued with a BMW driver who almost hit him while turning right onto Clinton St. After the driver got out of his car and continued arguing, the gunman fired multiple shots, missing the other man, though hitting a female senior pedestrian once in the buttocks.
