BRONX, New York (WABC) -- The NYPD says a gunman wanted for shooting a Bronx gas station worker, may also be responsible for the shooting of a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer.
The brazen attack in Philadelphia happened around 4 p.m. on November 25 on the 4500 block of Frankford Avenue.
"It's bold, it's brazen and it's something we are going to do everything we can to solve immediately," Philadelphia Police Deputy Commissioner Frank Vanore said.
Surveillance video shows the male suspect walking up to the 37-year-old PPA officer from behind and shooting him in the ear and shoulder.
According to investigators, Philadelphia police received information from the NYPD that the man seen in the video may have also shot a Sunoco gas station employee in the Bronx on November 22.
Investigators say the 59-year-old victim was working in the office.
Surveillance video shows the suspect walk towards the door. When the victim opened it to assist, the man displayed a gun and fired two rounds, one of them hitting the victim in the head.
He is in the hospital recovering and remains in critical condition.
Meanwhile, the PPA officer, who has been identified as Timothy McKenzie, is assigned to the Frankford neighborhood and is well-known in the community.
McKenzie is expected to make a full recovery.
The suspect is described as a man who is about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, with a thin build. He was seen wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt, green cargo pants, black mask, gloves and black boots.
The NYPD and Philadelphia police are still searching for a motive in both shootings.
The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
The City of Philadelphia and The Philadelphia Parking Authority each have offered $10,000 for a total of $20,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the man in the photos.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.
