A group of gunmen is being sought by police from the 109th Precinct in Flushing after shots were fired outside a four-story apartment building during the early morning of July 4.

Investigators say the men were walking down Haight Street around 3 a.m. when they suddenly pulled out handguns when at least one of them opened fire breaking windows at the location and “creating a substantial risk to the public,” police said.

The gunmen took off on foot in an unknown direction, and no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspects showing the man who opened fire wearing a black hooded jacket with a black face mask, black pants and black shoes. Another man was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt with a camouflage-like design, a black face covering, black pants and dark sneakers.
