Update Monday, March 30

An undercover NYPD narcotics cop fired at a suspect in Laurelton Wednesday night after the driver tried to flee and almost struck two officers, according to police.

The cops attempted to stop the vehicle at Merrick Boulevard and 220th Street at about 8:10 p.m. as they were conducting a drug transaction, authorities said. That’s when the car tried to flee and nearly hit the undercover officers. One of the cops then shot at the car, but it got away, police said.

The passenger, a 36-year-old man, was later apprehended and charges were pending. The driver is still at large.

No one was reported injured.
