The NYPD have released surveillance images of a man they're looking for after a 43-year-old man was shot and killed and another man was left with a severe head wound during an attack in a New York City neighborhood.

Police say the attack occurred in Washington Heights, where officers responding to a 911 call reporting a shooting found a 43-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, while a 31-year-old had a cut to his head.

Both were taken to an area hospital, where the older man was pronounced dead. The NYPD later identified him as Jose Nunez of Manhattan.

The other man is in stable condition.

The NYPD on Monday released an elevator camera's video and photograph of a man who's wanted in connection with the attack.

Investigators urged witnesses to call Crime Stoppers with tips.
