Several shots have been fired at police officers [on foot patrol] in Brooklyn from a car that fled the scene of the shooting during which no one was hurt. An active search for the four suspects is underway.

Police have instituted a Level 1 Mobilization after NYPD officers were attacked on Flatbush Avenue and Ditmas Avenue in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn at about 10:40pm.

While no injuries have been reported, at least two shots were fired from a passing black Nissan four-door sedan that immediately fled the scene, police sources told New York Daily News.

According to reports, police are now searching for four black males who later abandoned the vehicle. A ground and air operation involving K-9 Units, at least one helicopter and Emergency Services Units managed to locate the vehicle on Rogers Avenue.

According to Sergeants Benevolent Association, which promotes the welfare of New York’s finest, two uniformed officers were shot at after suspects in a “dark colored sedan with tinted windows slowly approached them, then made a statement about ‘getting’ them and proceeded to fire shots.” The association said that the car had four “male blacks” inside.
