NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The NYPD is on the hunt for multiple suspects, believed to be gang members, in connection to the murder earlier this month of a 22-year-old man in the East New York section of Brooklyn.

Police describe the fatal shooting of Tyquan Eversley, 21, which happened on Elton Street on March 19, as random and unprovoked. 

And NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea likened the shooting to the brutal murder of Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz, 15, last June in the Bronx.

"You have gang involvement and, literally, hoodlums organizing," Shea said. "Driving around in cars looking for this individual, chasing him down."

Video surveillance released by NYPD show Thursday show Eversley being fatally shot after the group chased him through numerous streets and backyards. 

The victim attempted to jump over a fence but landed on another fence, becoming stuck in barbed wire.

While stuck, one suspect hurled a large rock at the victim and another shot him multiple times. 

Shea said the video surveillance compilation is difficult to watch.

“You are literally going to see a 21-year-old male fighting for his life, running on the streets of Brooklyn, being chased," Shea says.

Officials believed the attackers have gang affiliations but aren't sure what the motive was. 

So far no arrests have been made, the NYPD urges anyone with information about the identities of the suspects to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
