Police are investigating a crash at the 81st NYPD Precinct station in Bedford-Stuyvesant Friday afternoon. This is News 4 Chopper video over the scene.

A man armed with two guns drove into a police precinct in Brooklyn Friday afternoon, smashed into a vehicle and shot himself, police said.

The 32-year-old man, who was involved in some type of domestic problem, sped up to the precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 3 p.m., crashed into the car and then shot himself under the chin, according to police.

Officers outside had to jump out of the way to avoid his speeding car, a gray Lexus SUV. 

Police say the man is in critical condition at Kings County Hospital.

The police van was empty and no other injuries were reported. 

Chopper 4 captured video of the aftermath.
