Officials responded to a dispute near 5304 Avenue L in the Flatlands section of Brooklyn around 11 a.m.

Several people were standing outside during the dispute, police said when one person had a firearm.

As the man attempted to flee in his car, police said he clipped five surrounding officers. He eventually lost control of the vehicle and tried to run away on foot. While running away, police said he threw the firearm, trying to get rid of it. He was later apprehended by police along 58th Street and Avenue J, and was taken into custody.

One officer discharged his firearm, striking no one, and the firearm the man tried to dispose of was recovered, police said.

The officers were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Charges are pending.
