An undercover NYPD narcotics cop fired at a suspect in Laurelton Wednesday night after the driver tried to flee and almost struck two officers, according to police.
The cops attempted to stop the vehicle at Merrick Boulevard and 220th Street at about 8:10 p.m., authorities said. That’s when the car tried to flee and nearly hit the undercover officers. One of the cops then shot at the car, but it got away, police said.
The passenger, a 36-year-old man, and the driver, were later apprehended at separate locations. Charges are pending against both.
No one was reported injured.
