A man walking his dog in the middle of the night was shot and killed by a gunman who pulled a rifle from behind his back and fired at his target, but missed, according to police.

The gunman is seen on surveillance video standing on a sidewalk on West 146th Street in the early hours of June 10 answering a phone call when another man walks by.

The suspect pulls out his rifle from behind him and points it at the man before firing, but he missed his target, officials said. Winston McKay was at the corner of Amsterdam Avenue walking his dog when he was hit by the errant bullet, and died.

The victims husband, Terry Solomon, now says he is afraid to walk the dog in the same neighborhood.
