The gunfire wounded three people, such as a four-year-old woman who authorities say was searching for toys.
Law enforcement sources told The New York Post who 31-year-old Farrakhan Muhammad was named as an individual of interest in Saturday night's Times Square shooting that injured three people, such as a four-year-old woman, according to reports.
Shots rang out before 5 pm Saturday in 44th Street and Seventh Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.
Not one of them is associated with the others. Were taken to Bellevue Hospital and have been expected to live, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea explained.
Authorities are still trying to find the guy. A video published by the Police Department on Twitter revealed a person of curiosity walking away from the spectacle.
Fox News hasn't independently confirmed the identity of this man seen from the footage.
"The flood of illegal firearms into our town must cease," the mayor stated on Twitter.
