Hell on wheels: Cops are hunting for this pistol-packing biker, who opened fire on another driver in Crown Heights on Sept. 26.

Cops are searching for a pistol-packing biker who opened fire on another motorist in Crown Heights on Tuesday.

A witness told police the motorcyclist was in conversation with the driver of a dark-colored sedan on Kingston Avenue near Atlantic Avenue at 1:40 pm, when their exchange suddenly “turned physical,” according to a report.

The motorist drove off, making a right onto Atlantic Avenue, but the biker sped after the vehicle and immediately began pumping bullets into it, police said.

The shooting resulted in no injuries, and both the gunman and his victim fled the scene, cops said.

Video cameras captured the motorcyclist, who was riding a black, all-purpose bike and wore a white mask throughout the incident, according to a report.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
