VIDEO: Child nearly struck by bullet in gunfight on Bronx sidewalk

Video released by the NYPD shows a child narrowly avoiding being struck by a bullet as two men got into a gunfight on a Bronx sidewalk.

In the video, a man can be seen standing on the street just after 4 p.m. on Webster Avenue in the Claremont Village section of the Bronx. As another man walks past, the two appear to get into some kind of verbal dispute.

When a third person steps onto the sidewalk and approaches the pair, the two men suddenly pull out guns and begin shooting at each other.

Just after the shooting begins, a child runs out from where he had apparently been standing next to one of the men and tries to take cover, having been right next to the men when they began shooting.
