Police remain on the hunt for a gunman accused of ambushing a 39-year-old woman outside her Queens home early Friday morning, and officials say new surveillance video shows the moment he pulled the trigger.

The man killed the victim outside her house in Jamaica around 6:30 a.m. on Foch Boulevard, according to the NYPD.

The department released new video on Saturday of the man walking up on a vehicle and firing multiple gunshots at the victim.

Hospital officials at nearby Jamaica Medical Center pronounced her dead later that morning.

Police describe the suspect as approximately 5'10" and was last seen wearing a black hooded bubble jacket and blue jeans.
