CASTLE HILL — A Bronx man was arrested after he pointed a gun at two officers early Saturday morning, police said.
Shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, uniformed NYPD officers Wilbert Hernadez and Cesar Deleon, both assigned to the Anti-Crime Unit in the 43rd Precinct, heard shots fired and saw Jeffrey Perez, 24, with a gun in front of 2120 Randall Ave., police said.
When the officers approached Perez, of Van Nest, he pointed a .22-caliber H&R Rimfire revolver at them, police said. Hernadez and Deleon fired their weapons at Perez but did not hit him, police said.
Perez fled on foot, and after a brief chase, Hernadez, an 11-year veteran, and Deleon, a six-year veteran, arrested Perez.
The officers recovered the loaded revolver from Perez and were both transported to Jacobi Medical Center for tinnitus, police said.
Perez was not injured and was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration, police said.
A spokesman for the NYPD said Perez had several prior arrests but that they were all sealed.
