BUSHWICK, Brooklyn -- Six NYPD officers fired approximately 84 shots at a suspect during a gunfight in Brooklyn Friday morning. The suspect, 27-year-old Jerrol Harris was hit in the in the leg. It all started around 1:15 a.m. in Bushwick.
Harris was originally wanted for shooting 52-year-old Leon Faison, who was loading up his car parked outside his home on Madison Street for a trip with his family.
Neighbors say the gunshots sounded like the "wild wild west." PIX11 obtained surveillance video that shows the commotion.
Police tell PIX11 when Faison opened the rear trunk hatch and discovered Harris inside, attempting to steal the car.
Harris jumped out, shot Faison in the arm, and ran away. That's when Faison chased Harris blocks away near Broadway. During the chase, the victim alerted two NYPD officers who tried to stop Harris.
Instead of turning himself in, Harris allegedly opened fire on the officers. The officers fired at least 40 shots. When the gunfight was over, at least 84 bullets went flying.
Harris is in stable condition, under arrest facing several charges. None of the officers involved were hurt.
