Detectives are looking for the gunman who shot and killed a 19-year-old man during a fight in Harlem on Monday night.
Police said the victim was gunned down at the corner of West 141st Street and 8th Avenue at about 9:47 p.m. on July 26.
Officers from the 32nd Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found the victim with a bullet wound to his torso.
Based on a preliminary investigation, police learned that the victim had gotten into an argument with the unknown male suspect for reasons that remain unknown at this time.
The words turned deadly, law enforcement sources said, when the suspect opened fire on the victim. After firing the fatal shot, the gunman boarded a motorcycle that fled in an unknown direction.
EMS units rushed the victim to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.
So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
