Police in New York City have released dramatic surveillance video of a shooting outside of a McDonald's restaurant in Brooklyn. The victim remains in critical but stable condition.

The New York Daily News reports that 18-year-old Tyquan Sewell got into an argument with a man Tuesday afternoon. He told him to follow him to a nearby McDonald's.

At some point, they met up with two other men and they proceeded to pass a gun around to each other, unbeknownst to Sewell.

"What you see here is a pretty elaborate choreography of handing off the gun from the first player, to the second player and to the gunman - all along luring the victim to the ambush," said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

Once at the restaurant, two of the men walked in, while another took the gun out of a bag and opened fire on the sidewalk.

The first bullet grazed Sewell's head, sending him reeling to the ground. The gunman fired two more times, hitting Sewell in the torso, groin and leg. The video shows Sewell rolling into the busy street in an effort to get away.

It also shows the other two accomplices stealing Sewell's sneakers just as officers pulled up.

Police are still looking for the trio. The gun was found in a garbage can a block away.
