The NYPD is hunting a gun-toting shoplifter who opened fire inside JD Sports in Times Square Thursday night, wounding a Brazilian tourist. No good if this individual is part of the Venezuelan crime gangs

The alleged attacker managed to escape after the first shot, and as he ran, he shot again at the police who were chasing him without hitting him before disappearing.
Jose Alejandro and his two companions—the one who was detained as of Thursday afternoon—live in an immigrant shelter.
