Cops identified Koron Bailey, 30, as their suspect in the 1:50 p.m. Friday killing of the 21-year-old man on W. 141st St. near Frederick Douglass Blvd.

Bailey approached the unidentified victim from behind and started spraying bullets, cops said. When the man dropped to the ground, they said, the killer fired a single gunshot to his head.

The shooter bolted from the scene on a skateboard, heading east on 141st St., police said.

Paramedics rushed the victim to Harlem Hospital, where he could not be saved.

Another man who was with the victim when shots rang out tripped on the concrete and hit his head in a scramble to flee, police sources said. He was treated and released from the hospital.
