NYC: Disturbing video shows NYC man shoot at cops in apartment stairwell standoff

Disturbing video shows a Brooklyn man opening fire on NYPD cops in the stairwell of an apartment building, striking two officers who “narrowly avoided being killed,” police said Monday.

The officers were responding to a 911 call about a man shot inside his Prospect Lefferts Gardens home at around 9 p.m. Sunday.

CCTV footage released by cops Monday shows a man exiting the second-floor apartment in question with a blanket over his head.

He then begins speaking to the cops standing at the bottom of the narrow staircase.

After exchanging a few words with the seemingly belligerent man the cops being walking up the stairs in a single file line, according to bodycam video.

“You called?” the first cop in line asks.
