NEW YORK (AP) - Police are seeking a man wanted for shooting a woman in New York City before fleeing the scene on an electric scooter.

The New York Police Department released a video Monday showing footage of a man they believe to be the suspect on his scooter. Police say the suspect shot a 26-year-old woman in the arm as she was exiting a cab, then fled on an electric scooter.

She is recovering and is expected to be OK.

Police say the woman was not the intended target.

The NYPD is asking anyone with information to contact them.
