A brute shot a Bensonhurst senior in his home and fled in the man’s car on Feb. 8, said police.

A neighbor called the cops after heading gunfire at a two-story home on Bay 8th Street between Benson and Bath Avenues at 6:39 pm, officials said. Police discovered the 66-year-old victim unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the torso, authorities said.

Emergency responders took the man to Maimonidies Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival, said officials.

Security camera footage of a nearby home captured the tough fleeing the scene in the victim’s blue Ford Mustang. Police recovered the car early Feb. 9 abandoned in Brownsville, according to a police spokesman.

A police investigation is ongoing.
