Police are looking for four suspects in the incident. Their car was found abandoned, but at press time, no arrests had been made.
WNBC-TV reported that NYPD officials said the officers weren't targeted, but the Sergeants Benevolent Association — a police union — posted on Facebook that the suspects “made a statement about getting them” prior to firing shots at the officers.
New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton told the Associated Press Wednesday that investigators reviewed video of the incident and determined that the shots that missed the officers were aimed at another target.
WNBC added that NYPD officers “have been patrolling in pairs” following attacks on police in Baton Rouge and Dallas.
