Two shots were fired at a vehicle in a car chase through Forest Hills Tuesday.

The suspects, who were in a blue Honda Accord, drove up alongside a man who was in a vehicle on Yellowstone Boulevard–near Ingram Street–at around 4:20 p.m. The driver of the Honda spoke to the victim through the window while a passenger in that vehicle brandished a firearm.

The victim, 34, immediately drove off and the suspects followed him in the blue Honda. During the chase, the passenger in the Honda leaned out of the window and fired two shots at the victim’s vehicle.

The victim drove to the 112th Precinct on Austin Street and the two suspects fled the scene on Austin Street. There were no injuries reported.

The police have few details as to the suspects other than the operator of the Honda is believed to be Hispanic, while the passenger is described as a male who was wearing a gray shirt or sweatshirt.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
