A Bronx teenager, one of four people wounded in a wild drive-by shooting, has died, and cops released video from the shooting Wednesday to help find the killer.

Aneki Chung, 18, died at Jacobi Medical Center Nov. 22, five days after he was shot in the head on Burke Ave. near Barnes Ave.

Chung, who had an imitation pistol on him, appears to have been the intended target. Police have yet to make any arrests.

On Nov. 17 the driver and a passenger in a black SUV heading west on Burke Ave. fired at least 12 shots. The driver barely bothered to take aim, unleashing a barrage of bullets over the roof of the car with one hand while still steering the SUV with his other, cops said.

Video released Wednesday night shows a half dozen people walking or standing along the sidewalk when the SUV passes by and gunmen start firing. The group scatters, and two people drop to the ground, one of them leaping behind a parked SUV for cover.

“The car came by and there were so many shots I couldn’t count,” said one witness, who was too rattled to give her name. “I wasn’t looking too hard because I don’t want to get shot.”

In addition to Chung, a 59-year-old woman was shot in the left leg, a 15-year-old boy was hit in the buttocks and a 26-year-old man was struck in his upper body.

All three were taken to Jacobi Medical Center and were expected to recover. It is believed at least two of the survivors were innocent bystanders.

Chung’s aunt, Jasmine Willoughby, 65, was shocked at his involvement.

“He’s a good kid who goes to school,” she said after the shooting. “He’s a quiet kid who would help you fix your computer.”

Police also released a photo of the SUV used in the shooting, and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
