NYPD video footage shows the suspect walking into the building carrying a blue bag in his right hand and a white one in his left hand. The video then cuts to show the suspect running out of the building carrying only the blue bag. He was also seen wearing a white helmet and a black and yellow vest, and riding a red e-bike.

The victim – 30-year-old Davon Venable – was shot multiple times when he opened the door to his apartment, police said. He was rushed to a nearby hospital with gunshot wounds to his back and neck, but could not be saved. 

Police are asking anyone with information related to the murder to call  NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
