Police are searching for the goon who shot a teen in front of an Avenue X deli on July 25.

The malefactor hopped off of a bicycle and fired four rounds at the 16-year-old at 4 pm between Haring and Brown streets — striking him once in the left leg and again on the right side of his butt — before fleeing on the bike, according to authorities. Emergency responders took the teen to Lutheran Hospital in stable condition, police said.

The triggerman — who stands 5-foot-10 and weighs about 200 pounds — was last seen wearing a blue shirt, black shorts, and a red hat, according to police and surveillance photos.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477 or for Spanish, (888) 57–PISTA (74782).
