Man fires rifle at cops responding to Queens domestic violence call; suspect in custody

Police officers responding to a domestic violence call in Queens on Sunday were met by a reputed gang member who fired a half-dozen gunshots at them.

Cops showed up at 125th St. and 25th Ave. in College Point just before 4:30 p.m., after a woman called 911 to say her boyfriend assaulted her. He had a rifle, she said, and was threatening to shoot.

“Shots fired! Shots fired! Second floor window!” an arriving officer shouted over a police radio. The officers took shelter and called for backup, with one cop announcing over the radio, “Watch out for crossfire.”

A suspect walked out of the home moments later and surrendered to cops, telling them he had an “AK-47," according to police radio transmissions.
