Wild new video captures the moment a duo attacked a man with a hammer inside a Bronx deli – before the male assailant pulled out a gun and opened fire.
The 50-year-old victim was inside a bodega on Morris Park Avenue near White Plains Road in Van Nest minutes before 10 p.m. Dec. 26 when the male suspect accused him of looking at a woman who was with him, cops said.
A language barrier made matters worse, and the squabble turned violent, police said.
Video shows the male suspect, who walked with a single crutch, pushing the victim, who was holding onto his sweatshirt.
The female suspect then struck the victim in the head with a hammer, while the man pointed a gun at him, the clip shows.
The fracas continued outside the store, where the woman continued to struggle with the victim and hit him with the hammer, the clip shows.
