BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn – A man was hurt in a police-involved shooting in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn late Friday and arrested Saturday afternoon.
Kowon Davis, 44, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing a police officer.
Police said three detectives from the Brooklyn North Gang Squad were on patrol Friday night around 11 p.m. when they saw a black Lexus stop in front of them at 656 Howard Avenue.
Davis allegedly got out of the car with a gun in his hand. He then motioned toward the crowd of people gathered around, police said.
The three detectives, in plainclothes, told Davis to stop and not to move.
He then allegedly turned toward the officers and fired the gun, police said. Gunfire was exchanged between Davis and the officers before the driver ran.
Officers caught up to him about a block away. He was shot in his left leg during the incident and taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.
The three officers involved in the incident were taken to a local hospital for observation, according to the NYPD. None of them were struck by any bullets.
