According to cops, the shooter fled out a back door and has not been found or apprehended. It was unclear immediately whether Harvey was shot by the man with whom he entered the deli or by another person who was waiting for them in the basement, a police source said.

Harvey, who resides in Brooklyn's East Flatbush neighborhood, was uncooperative with police when he was loaded into the back of an ambulance and rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital.

Harvey died Monday in the hospital after clinging to life for two weeks, cops reported.
