Cops are hunting the gunmen who they say shot a man heading home from a Bedford-Stuyvesant nightclub on Aug. 4.

The victim, 30, became embroiled in a shouting match with the three goons on Nostrand Avenue near Herkimer Place at 4 a.m., when one of the club rats pulled a gun and fired one shot, cops said.

Paramedics rushed to the scene to discover the victim suffering a grievous chest wound and rushed him to Kings County hospital in critical condition, according to police.

Investigators obtained security footage of one suspect, a 25-year-old man standing at 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds, cops said.

Police described a second suspect as 25 years old, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and 130 pounds.

No arrests have been made in the case, and the investigation remains ongoing, cops said.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect a reward of up to $2,500 through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
