Suspects exchange gunfire in brazen Washington Heights shootout, video shows

A new video shows a pair of gunmen fire at each other in Washington Heights in broad daylight — though none of the rounds connected.

The footage, released by the NYPD on Friday, captures a duel between two men, a 48-year-old and 19-year-old, on Audubon Avenue near W. 174th Street just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday, cops said.

The 48-year-old man, identified by police as Guillermo Vargas, is seen in the surveillance footage standing in flip flops before digging through the trash, where he appears to have stashed his firearm.

The other man, Ivan Montes, then runs up the block and fires off several shots while ducking behind a tree and cars — as Vargas dashes off, losing his sandals, and returns fire, the video shows.
