The Belt Parkway reopened Sunday after police stopped a car of men who they say stole catalytic converters from vehicles in Brooklyn.
The NYPD says when police tried to approach the car on the parkway, the suspects aimed their vehicle at an officer. They say that’s when police fired three shots at the car’s tires to stop it.
All westbound lanes of the Belt Parkway were closed in Bath Beach for the investigation but have since reopened.
Police say they are still searching for up to three men. The NYPD says it doesn’t appear anyone was injured by the gunshots.
