New York Police Department via Twitter Surveillance video released by the New York Police Department shows suspects wanted in a series of recent shootings, July 31, 2021, in Queens, New York.

A pair of masked men unleashed a fusillade of gunfire on a crowded street in a New York City neighborhood Saturday night, wounding 10 people before getting on mopeds and speeding away, police said.

New York Police Department investigators said the episode appeared to be tied to gang violence, but that seven of the shooting victims were innocent bystanders, including a 72-year-old man.

"This was, as I can most accurately describe it, a brazen, coordinated attack," NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said at a news conference on Sunday.

No arrests have been made.
