NEW YORK - The NYPD released disturbing security camera video footage showing a man with a handgun acting erratically, threatening motorists, and smashing windows in Brooklyn.
The man struck a 23-year-old man in the back of the head with the handgun near Lefferts Avenue and New York Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens just after 8 p.m. on Nov. 8, 2019, police said. He then fled on Lefferts Avenue, police said, where security cameras captured his scary antics.
The video footage shows the man kick a bag of garbage, repeatedly point the handgun to his own head, bang on car window, brandish the gun, slam the car's side mirror with the gun, slam another car's mirror with the gun, and then shatter two windows at the Beth Rivkah Elementary School, also using the gun.
The man was last seen heading westbound on East New York Avenue, police said.
