    Police are looking for the brazen and lone gunman who opened fire on a crowded MTA Brooklyn bus, wounding an 18-year-old passenger in the stomach.

    The teenage victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and is expected to fully recover. Police say the gunman is also 18 years old.

    New surveillance video shows the gunman stepping off the B60 bus at Wilson Avenue and Stanhope Street in Bushwick. He was wearing a light blue Hollister sweatshirt.

    Bystanders say the suspect was calm.

    "The dude who did it had no conscience," said Joe Vasquez, who witnessed the shooting.

    Detectives are trying to figure out if the shooting was random or if the gunman and victim knew each other.

    The incident happened around 4:48 p.m. Wednesday on the B60 bus, police said. The bus driver heard a commotion and pulled over.

    When the driver opened the doors to the bus, everybody ran out. The driver went to the back and noticed a man bleeding from a gunshot wound to his stomach, police said.

    The incident is under investigation.

    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit tips online at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or via text to 274637(CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
