The driver of the Range Rover ran off with a bag in his hand.

"I saw the gentleman, or the suspect, running around that white van and he was carrying a large bag," said Jimmy Bahr, who was in the neighborhood with his three-year-old son.

The driver of the white van was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Police say the man had been shot before the accident.  There have been no arrests in the case and the investigation is ongoing, according to New York City Police.

The identity of the shooting victim is pending proper family notification.

"This is a very nice neighborhood and to see something like this going on around here is unheard of," Bahr added.
