Police say shots have been fired at two New York Police Department officers, narrowly missing them.

It happened late Tuesday night in Brooklyn. The officers were not hit.

The Sergeants Benevolent Association says four males drove past the officers in a car and shot at them as they were walking. Union officials say the suspects then fled the scene and dumped the car.

It’s unclear if the officers returned fire but no arrests have yet been made.

The union is urging other officers to remain alert at all times.

The investigation is ongoing.
