Cops are asking for help collaring a gunman who opened fire on several people inside a Williamsburg public housing complex last weekend.

The shooter waltzed into the lobby of the Cooper Park Houses on Morgan Avenue near Maspeth Avenue and fired off multiple rounds at numerous individuals who were standing in the courtyard of the complex at about 9 pm on Oct. 12, police said.

No one was injured.

Authorities released surveillance footage of the gunman in the act with the hope that it will lead to an arrest.

Police described the male suspect as between 20 and 25 years old, 165 pounds, and about 5-foot-7. The shooter was last seen wearing a blue jacket with the letter “C” on the front left side, a green hooded sweatshirt, and a white T-shirt underneath, officials said.

Anyone with information in regards to this shooting should call at (800) 577–8477. All calls will be confidential.
