A bullet narrowly missed a Bronx police officer on Saturday night, ripping a hole straight through his hat, the the Daily News reports. The unidentified officer was responding to a gunfight between the Squared Gang and the 18 Park Gang at E. 145th Street and Third Avenue shortly before 10:30 p.m. According to the News, he "held his hat in his hand so it wouldn't fly off. That's when the bullet tore through the fabric, just missing him."
Cops said it wasn't clear if the bullet was meant for the officer, who did not discharge his firearm. During the clash, a 15 year-old boy was shot in the back; he's now in stable condition at Lincoln Hospital.
An NYPD spokesperson told us that as of this morning no arrests had been made.
