A GUNMAN shot dead a 17-year-old boy at point-blank range as he tried to crawl away during a horrifying New York City gunfight.
Kether Werts was shot dead on Thursday, new surveillance footage released by the New York Police Department has shown.
The incident took place in broad daylight just before 5pm in the Bronx.
The footage shows two men wearing black hoodies and white face masks approaching a group of teens across the street.
One of the youths then crosses the street to approach the men, before the group beings to run away as, it is assumed, gunfire started.
Werts appears to get caught between two vehicles as one of the gunmen follows him. The teen then trips and attempts to crawl away.
