By 1010 WINS

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Two NYPD officers suffered minor injuries after a bullet was fired through the window of an occupied patrol vehicle in the Bronx and a firework was thrown into an occupied cruiser in Brooklyn on Saturday night, police said.

Just before midnight, a bullet came flying through the windshield of a patrol vehicle parked in front of the 40th Precinct house on Alexander Avenue in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.

The shooting came just an hour after someone threw a firework into a police cruiser at Stuyvesant and Gates avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 11 p.m.

An officer driving the vehicle had a minor hand injury and refused medical attention, police said.

No arrests have been reported in that incident either.

The Rev. Oswald Denis, who lives in the Bronx precinct, said he was upset by what happened.

“This is outrageous. We are fed up. We stand with NYPD in New York City. We support our NYPD,” Denis said.

The Police Benevolent Association, an NYPD union, responded to the incidents in a tweet criticizing Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council.

The Sergeants Benevolent Association, another NYPD union, warned officers to remain vigilant in a tweet.
