It happened around 4:30 a.m. in the area of Liberty Avenue and Van Siclen Avenue in East New York.
Officers were responding to a call about a disorderly group with reports that one of the men in the group had a gun, police said.
When officers arrived, police said a 23-year-old man fled on foot as cops approached. After chasing the suspect for about two blocks, police said he turned and pointed a gun at the cops.
