BROOKLYN — A Brooklyn teen is in critical but stable condition at Kings County Hospital just days after a plot to take his life was captured on camera.

Surveillance footage released by police on Wednesday captured the ambush and near fatal shooting of Tyquan Sewall, 18, outside a Brooklyn McDonald’s.

The video clearly shows the intricate scheme, where a collection of young assailants pass along a .32-caliber Smith & Wesson before one of them approaches Sewall, aims the pistol at his head and fires.

A detailed rundown of the footage shows:

• 0:12– A man wearing a black shirt and carrying a black bag hands the bag to another man in a white T-shirt.

• 0:15– The man in the white T-shirt pulls out the revolver as his pal walks inside the restaurant.

• 0:20– A man in a red track jacket is seen walking towards McDonald’s.

• 0:24– The man in red enters the McDonald’s and is passed the revolver.

• 00:25– Sewal enters the frame, walking toward McDonald’s wearing black shorts and a white shirt.

• 0:30– Sewal reaches the entrance as the man in red steps out of the door, aims the pistol at Sewall’s head and fires.
