An off-duty investigator is being charged with attempted murder after a criminal complaint says that he shot two rounds at a Williamsburg bar.
Police say it happened early Sunday morning at the Horses and Divorces bar.
The complaint details how 31-year-old Stephen Abreu, a narcotics investigator, was at the bar when he got into a fight with the bartender.
Once the bouncer tried to kick out Abreu from the bar, the complaint says Abreu took out a gun, pointed it at the victim. Both then got into a struggle causing the gun to go off.
Abreu is now also facing assault and reckless endangerment charges.
