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.

Chinese guy? Ginger? Orthodox Jew. I mean I have the age/height & weight, but something is missing in this description. I wonder why.

I believe the man is German Irish. That's what my sources say, anyway.

Ha, thanks for the tip John Wasserman.

But really;

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

No surveillance footage BP?

In absence of that, are you too afraid to give a REAL description of the suspect?

Sweet journalism brah.

Police got a good description of his height, weight, and the fine details of his clothing, but unfortunately that was all.

John Wasserman from Windsor Terrace says:
It's good to see that this article has been updated and that it is now omnipresent that this man is clearly German Irish. Pardon my saying so, and of course, for the interruption.

Bratton from #1 Snide street and Corn avenue says:
Jeez!, you boys are all a titter like little girls. One can clearly see from the images that it is a black male. There is no need to state the obvious especially when you have such clear pictures. Stevie Wonder called and said that you girls shouldn't try so hard to flog that dark, er ah, dead horse since even he could see that it was a negro.
