Gunman fatally shoots man outside of NYC deli (DISTURBING VIDEO)

A hail of bullets greeted a 20-year-old man after he bought a ginger ale and stepped outside a Brooklyn bodega Saturday — sending the mortally wounded victim scurrying back into the store.

Donovan Frazier’s final moments were captured on a dramatic surveillance video inside the Franklin Finest Deli on Franklin Ave. in Crown Heights.

The video shows Frazier standing by the front door as bullets suddenly start whizzing inside about 4:20 a.m. The suspected gang member rushed back inside, clutching his chest as two deli workers hit the floor for cover.

Struck multiple times in the chest and stomach, Frazier crawled to the back of the shop where he was found covered in blood.

“When he came (back) inside, he was already bleeding,” said Ghamdan Obayah, 26, one of the owners of Franklin Finest Deli.

“He lay down behind the deli and stayed there. He was breathing very hard and crying.”

First responders rushed the victim to Kings County Hospital, where he died.

“I was on my way to Rikers last year on this same day,” he posted on Facebook on Aug. 2.

One witness said Frazier walked out of the store and into an ambush.

“I saw four guys waiting behind some cars on Franklin Ave., right outside the deli,” said Fahmi Ali, 17, a clerk at the Shorey Deli & Grocery, across the street from the scene of the shooting.

“One of them had a gun and started shooting four or five times toward the corner.”

Ali said the victim was a regular customer at his store as well and had bought a juice there about four hours before the shooting.

“He’s in here a lot,” he said. “He was a nice guy. He always treated me well.”

The victim ran back into back into the shop to seek cover from the torrent of gunfire.

Friends and family members hugged and cried outside the victim’s home just two blocks away from the bodega.

“RIP Breezy” read a poster set up nearby, referring to Frazier’s alleged street name.

Cops were hunting for the shooter. 

The killing comes as the city marks a 24% drop in homicides. As of Thursday, 189 murders were investigated across the five boroughs — 61 fewer than the 250 reported this time last year. Shootings were also down by 23%, a drop from 734 last year to 563.
