A gunman fired several shots at an off-duty NYPD officer late Wednesday but no one was hurt, according to police.
Police say the officer was sitting in his own car around 11:30 p.m. near 154th Street and Macombs Place in Manhattan when a man approached him, displaying a firearm. It's unclear if the man was attempting to steal the car or whether the incident was a robbery attempt but the off-duty cop didn't comply with the suspect's demands and the gunman opened fire.
Bullets struck the car but the officer wasn't injured, police said.
The suspect then fled in a silver vehicle and no other information was immediately available.
