A gunman shot someone in the shoulder at 118 Avenue D, at the Jacob Riis Houses, last night around 8 p.m., the police say.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.

The shooter, who wore a light colored shirt and grey jeans, fled the scene and has not yet been apprehended.

The shooting follows another unsettling incident in the neighborhood; Sunday, armed robbers held up the Whole Foods at Houston and Bowery and made off with $26,000.
