BROOKLYN - A man is in custody after allegedly opening fire at pursuing officers on Bushwick Avenue.

Officials say two police officers were working on a tip about drug activity in the area at around 12 p.m. when they approached a man they deemed suspicious. The suspect, 25-year-old Darren Moore, then fled and the officers gave chase. When they caught up to Moore, he allegedly turned around and fired one shot at the officers.

The two officers were able to subdue Moore and arrest him. No one was injured during the ordeal.

One resident, Osvaldo Valdez, says the bullet shot by Moore shattered the window of his van. He says he got up for a break from working on his bike just minutes before the bullet struck the van.

Moore is now facing several charges, including attempted murder and resisting arrest.
