A man leaving an illegal gambling den in Upper Manhattan with a handful of cash was ambushed by a pair of gunmen then shot.

Video shows the victim and a friend running uptown on Amsterdam Ave. as one of the gunmen chases them, firing multiple rounds.  The other gunman appears to chicken out, suddenly spinning around and running back to the SUV.

The unidentified 25-year-old victim was leaving the underground gambling hotspot on Amsterdam Ave. near W 176th St. in Washington Heights with a “wad of cash in his hand” early Friday morning when the incident took place.   He was shot in the shoulder and thigh but remains in stable condition.

Authorities did reveal the victim was from Mississippi.
