According to video footage and the NYPD, a gang of youths, including one with a hammer, beat up a 67-year-old man following a fight that began on a Brooklyn bus.

The person who recorded the video from inside the bus told news outlets that the confrontation started when the teens were shooting a Nerf gun and the older man objected.

In the video shot from inside the bus and posted on social media, a woman continually orders them to "get off the bus!" The elderly man starts walking away before turning around and returning to the door of the bus. One of the youngsters tosses something at the elderly man, who dashes off the bus only to be confronted by one of the youths, who is brandishing a hammer.

The mob quickly surrounds the man, and they all take swings at him, including the youth with the hammer. “You’re gonna kill him!” a woman on the bus yells, as others cry in the background. As the old citizen rolls on the ground, one of the assailants kicks him from behind; the video ends there.
