Suspect wanted for firing gunshots, slamming into several cars in Bushwick
Police are searching for the person who slammed into several parked cars while on the run from NYPD at the intersection of Bushwick Avenue and Cooper Street.
Officers say the person who was behind the wheel of the car, and ultimately who allegedly caused the incident, was wanted for firing shots outside a restaurant about a mile and a half away.
Police say around 11:50 p.m. Tuesday, they saw a man firing shots outside of a restaurant on Warwick Street and Fulton Street in Cypress Hills. The shooter and another man reportedly took off running. Police say the man who was not the shooter threw a gun into a yard and another gun under a car. He was taken into custody and is now being questioned.
However, the suspect, who police say was the shooter, got into a white Nissan near Warwick Street and Atlantic Avenue and drove off, NYPD says.
Officers didn’t get a chance to pursue him due to one of the police officers that rear-ended another police officer's car. No one was hurt, but the accused shooter was able to get away. The suspect only made it about a mile and a half to Bushwick Avenue and Cooper Street where police say he crashed into several parked cars, jumped out of the car, and took off running.
No one was injured, but police are still searching for the man who is accused of firing shots outside a restaurant and then crashing into parked cars in Bushwick.
