Harrowing security footage shows Brooklyn’s Coney Island looking like something out of the Wild West over memorial day weekend, capturing a wild broad-daylight shootout between multiple perpetrators.

The shocking video, filmed from the front of a local residence and released by the NYPD Wednesday, shows a group of four armed, hooded suspects walking down Mermaid Avenue before producing handguns and letting off a slew of shots.

Cops said the group, who wore masks during the brazen attack, had been targeting another group of four also armed individuals not seen in the footage, who returned fire, forcing the other group to fall back.

The incident took place on the largely residential street at roughly 5:30 pm, cops said Wednesday, adding no one was injured in the incident, which saw the rivaling crews let off at least 36 shots, ballistics experts who surveyed the scene said.

Police have yet to make an arrest in the case – which transpired as thousands flocked to the neighborhood and its iconic amusement park over Memorial Day Weekend, following Covid-related closures over the past two years.

About five people opened fire during the clash, police said – four from the group seen in the footage, and one man from the opposing crew, who was armed with a handguns, security footage from the area shows.

The group had been firing at a rival crew on the residential street, cops said – with one suspect (pictured) returning fire

After letting off the flurry of rounds, the group seen in the footage reportedly fled down the block, while the other fled into a nearby building.

Cops are now on the hunt for the five suspects who participated in the shooting, who were all caught on security footage at or near the crime scene.

Security footage from a nearby subway station captured likeness of the four suspects seen firing in the footage, masked and seemingly taking measures to hide their identities. 

Three looked to be male, while a fourth – the only to briefly show her face in the footage – looked to be female.

A nearby security camera also caught the member of the opposing group, an African-American man in a black jacket clutching a gun. Police did not release any images of the other members of the other group.

As of Wednesday morning, an arrest has yet to be made.

Cops said that of the 36 rounds fired, none struck any innocents – and none of the suspects for that matter – causing property damage only, cops said. Their investigation is ongoing.

The incident – which occurred in the middle of the day – was just one of multiple shooting seen over the long weekend, when families flocked to the city’s parks and other outdoor area to celebrate the holiday.

TSA worker Donovan Davy, 45, was shot in nearby East Flatbush while speaking to his sister on the phone, and was pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital.

Elsewhere in Brooklyn, a victim was killed at an apartment complex in Brownsville.

A man was also shot in Queens before 12am on Sunday, as he was riding the Q train from his home in Park Slope, Brooklyn, to Manhattan.

Suspected gunman Andrew Abdullah, 25, then opened fire as the train was crossing the Manhattan Bridge. He had been out on bail for previous violent offenses, and was taken into custody on Tuesday and charged with second degree murder.

The weekend also saw three others were hit by gunshots – all in Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, across the US, 26 died as a result of gun violence over the weekend, as crime continues to soar across America. 

New Yorkers in particular have been growing weary over the latest spike in violence and crimes on the city streets and subways.

While murders and shootings are down 10 and roughly five percent respectively from 2021, overall crime in the Big Apple is up 39.24 percent so far in 2022.

That includes a 19 percent rise in felony assaults, a nearly 15 percent increase in rapes and a 40 percent jump in robberies.

The meteoric rise in crime in the city seen since the pandemic has spurred Mayor Eric Adams, a former NYPD captain, to vow to crackdown on the transgressions.

However, those efforts so far proved unsuccessful – with crime up nearly 40 percent from last year.
