CROWN HEIGHTS (PIX11) — A car was set on fire outside the 77th Precinct in Brooklyn Wednesday evening, according to sources at the scene.
The now-torched car was in front the precinct house on Utica Avenue in Crown Heights.
The vehicle belongs to a police officer and is the officer’s private car, NYPD told PIX11 News Thursday morning.
It was not immediately clear if the fire was related to protests sparked by a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer in the in-custody death of Eric Garner.
An investigation is ongoing.
