This gunman must have been pretty pissed off.
The subway slogan is “If you see something, say something” — not “If you see someone pee, shoot him.”
But, according to police, on Sun., Oct. 18, around 5:50 p.m., that’s what happened to a 24-year-old man who was doing No. 1 on the northbound No. 1 platform at 14th St. and Seventh Ave.
An unidentified man, accompanied by a woman, reportedly began a verbal dispute with the peeing person. Things apparently escalated and the man fired multiple gunshots, striking the urinator once in the neck and once in the back.
The shooter and his female sidekick fled on a northbound train, exiting quickly at 18th St. and Seventh Ave.
The victim walked to the Lenox Health Greenwich Village emergency department after the incident in stable condition.
The male suspect is described as having a medium build and was last seen wearing a black bubble jacket, camouflage pants, black boots and a black du-rag and holding a blue string backpack.
The woman had a thin build and shoulder-length curly hair and was last seen wearing a multicolored jacket, pink leggings, black boots and a surgical mask on her chin and carrying a black pocketbook.
Police released surveillance photos and video of the suspects that were obtained after the incident.
On Oct. 26, police released additional photos of the alleged suspects, below:
