The suspected Times Square gunman was aiming for his brother when he shot three innocent bystanders, including a 4-year-old girl, law enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday.
The NYPD is still hunting for the suspect, identified by sources as 31-year-old illegal CD peddler Farrakhan Muhammad.
“We have our heavy hunters looking for him,’’ a source said of Muhammad, who was allegedly aiming at his brother, a Brooklyn resident, during Saturday’s horrific shooting.
The suspect has been busted before, including last year for allegedly assaulting a random passerby who tried to intervene when Muhammad started hassling a couple on the street, sources said.
Muhammad allegedly pushed the good Samaritan into a trash can before the suspect’s buddy punched the victim in the face, sources said.
