A popular Howard Beach eatery was the scene of a shootout between a federal agent and a suspect Monday night, according to a published report.

A task force, consisting of NYPD officers, Homeland Security and the FBI were at the Cross Bay Diner at about 11 p.m., trying to nab four people, the New York Post said.

At some point, the officials and suspects ended up in the parking lot of the Cross Bay Boulevard restaurant and shots were exchanged, the Post reported. Though it wasn’t immediately clear who fired first.

Three of the individuals were taken into custody and one man is still at large, according to the paper.

Police confirmed authorities are still looking for a suspect following a multi-agency narcotics task force operation involving Homeland Security at the diner Monday night.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 30s, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.
