CROWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. (WABC) -- The NYPD has released surveillance images of a man wanted for questioning in the shooting death of a Cuomo administration lawyer.

The video shows a man with a beard and glasses wearing a white cap backwards.

43-year old Carey Gabay was caught in the crossfire during a shootout between gangs before the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn last month.

The NYPD already released video of two men described as suspects, but there have still been no arrests.

The NYPD is now using facial recognition software to try to track down the gunman, who police believe is a local gang member. Authorities say he opened fire at a rival among hundreds who were peacefully enjoying the festivities, striking the first deputy counsel to the governor at about 3:47 a.m.

Detectives have collected more than 300 videos from the scene.

The NYPD is offering a $22,500 reward to try to find the killer.
