Three men were shot and wounded in Brooklyn Sunday afternoon and shots were also fired at police officers who were responding to the scene, according to officials and witnesses.
Police say the officers were not hurt and did not return fire.
The triple shooting occurred at around 3:30 p.m. on Bedford Avenue and Lenox Road in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
Mohammed Alcher said he saw two officers walk into the dangerous gun battle.
"I saw the two female cops walking up before I heard six loud gunshots," said Alcher.
It's unclear how many people were firing weapons.
The three wounded men were taken to Kings County Hospital, where they were listed in serious but stable condition.
Witnesses say police were combing the neighborhood looking for a possible gunman.
