Authorities released surveillance images and video Tuesday of a man who opened fire last month at a bustling South Philadelphia intersection.

No one was injured in the incident, which occurred just after 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 28, near the corner of Broad Street and Snyder Avenue.

The footage shows the suspect dropping a bicycle near an entrance to the Broad Street Line. As he descends the subway stairs, he pulls out a gun, heads back to street level and fires as he runs down the 1400 block of Snyder Avenue.

Investigators said the gunman had a brief encounter with a group of men prior to the shooting.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the PPD’s Shooting Investigations Group at 215-686-8271; call or text 215-686-8477; or submit at tip at www.phillypolice.com/forms/submit-a-tip.
