NEW YORK — Police in New York have released surveillance video showing a man fleeing on foot, firing blindly on officers who were pursuing him. 

Officers had approached two men, believed to be between 18 and 22 years old, on a sidewalk because one of the subjects was “wanted for an attempted robbery earlier in the day,” according to a report by the New York Post.  

Both suspects reportedly remain at large.
