A new video shows the moment a brave New Yorker stopped a gunman on the run in Manhattan.
The video shows the man who body slammed the armed suspect on March 16 at around 4 p.m. The man even held him by his jacket until the suspect gave up and surrendered to police.
The good Samaritan walked off casually after police apprehended the runaway suspect.
Authorities say the suspect, identified as Jason Fleming, was running after getting into a fight at a bodega where he flashed both a semi-automatic rifle and a revolver.
Fleming faces up with 15 years in prison if convicted.
