The 20-year-old victim told police he was standing on Atkins Ave. near Wortman Ave. in East New York at about 10:40 p.m. on Aug. 20 when the motorist rolled over his foot with his green Honda SUV.
The motorist sped off after hitting the victim, but returned a few moments later, witnesses told police.
He then began arguing with his victim.
During the spat, the motorist pulled a gun and shot the hobbled pedestrian twice in the left leg, police said.
Medics rushed the man to Brookdale University Medical Center for treatment.
The motorist sped off. No arrests have been made.
Cops describe the gunman as a dark-skinned male between 25 and 29-years-old. At the time of the shooting he was wearing a red hat, white shirt, dark colored pants and light colored shoes, investigators said.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is urged to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
