Police released a surveillance video Friday of a fight that led to the shooting of a 29-year-old man in Germantown.

Around 2 p.m. on Jan. 2, a man wearing a gray vest over a black hoodie walked in the direction of the victim on Germantown Avenue.

In the video, the victim appears partially hidden by a tree. Then the perp rushes the man and pummels him with his fists. During the struggle, the suspect draws a silver revolver and shoots the victim in his chest.

The victim survived, but a police spokesperson didn't know his condition on Friday.

Tipsters are urged to call 215-686-3243 OR text 773847.
