Cops are looking for a pair of suspects who fired at a man’s car during a chase in Queens earlier this week.

According to police, at 4:20 p.m. on Sept. 8 a 34-year-old man was parked near 72-89 Yellowstone Boulevard when two unknown men drove up to him in a blue Honda Accord. The driver spoke to the victim while the passenger pulled out a firearm.

The victim drove off but was followed by the two suspects. During the chase, the passenger leaned out his window and fired two shots at the victim’s car. The victim drove to the 112th Precinct while the suspects fled in their vehicle westbound on Austin Street.

There were no injuries or property damage as a result of the incident.

On Sept. 11, the NYPD released video of the incident from nearby surveillance footage and a photo of the car:

 

The driver is described as a Hispanic man and his passenger is described as a man with a gray shirt or sweatshirt.
