The victim was the passenger in a car cruising down the southbound lanes of the expressway, near Cedar Avenue in University Heights, just before 2:30 a.m.

A black sedan, possibly a BMW, pulled up alongside the victim’s car and a gunman popped out of the sunroof and started shooting while driving the vehicle, according to police.

One of the bullets struck the 44-year-old passenger in his back, police said.

The driver of the car with the wounded passenger went to a nearby hospital, where the victim was said to be in stable condition.

Police said the gunman sped off after unleashing the hail of gunfire.

The NYPD was seen investigating on the partially closed expressway in Citizen App video.

No arrests have been reported.
