Officers responding to a domestic violence complaint were fired at from inside a home in Queens, police said Monday.

No officers were injured in the confrontation Sunday, and the suspect later came out of the house and surrendered, a police spokesperson said.

Uniformed officers arrived at the house in the College Point section at around 4:30 p.m. after a woman called police and said her son had assaulted her, the spokesperson said.

Several shots were fired at the officers from the second floor of the house. After the officers retreated and called for backup, additional shots were fired from the first floor, police said.

No officer was struck by gunfire, and none of the officers fired their own weapons.

A 25-year-old man came out of the house and surrendered, police said. Charges against him were pending Monday morning.

  1. Nothing more scary for police officer than a call for a domestic dispute. 🙁

    Nothing more scary for the public than the people who think social workers should be sent to these calls without police!
