    What could have been the last moments of a woman's life played out on harrowing surveillance video last week as a hooded shooter tried to blast her away in front of a home in Queens -- and the gun apparently got jammed. 

    Police say the suspect walked up to a 45-year-old woman outside the home near 109th Street and 109th Avenue shortly before 7 p.m. Friday. 

    Video from the scene shows the man, wearing a white T-shirt with a black hood of sorts covering all but his mouth, walk up to the woman with his gun drawn. He appears to try to fire the weapon several times before giving up and running off. 

    No injuries were reported.
