Police have released video footage of two men engaged in a gunfight that took place in Jamaica Tuesday.

The gunslingers were firing shots at one another in the middle of the street by 194-05 Linden Blvd. at around 12:30 p.m. The pair were both using cars to shield themselves from the bullets.

Cops responded to the scene after multiple people called 911 about shots fired.

The second man fled in a black Acura 4-door sedan that was being driven by another unidentified individual.

There were no injuries reported, although a vehicle was damaged by stray bullets.

Anyone with information in regard to the shootout is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Firefighter injured battling 2-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning: FDNY

The FDNY battled a fast-moving two-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning that injured one firefighter. The blaze broke out in a two-story private home at 114 Walnut St., a block north of Forest Park at 2:34 a.m. Arriving units found heavy fire conditions throughout the basement, first and second floors. Firefighters were hampered by an SUV parked illegally in front of a fire hydrant at the location.

The FDNY transmitted a second alarm, bringing 25 units and 106 firefighters and EMS personnel to the scene. Nearby residents said the building had been undergoing construction in recent weeks and firefighters were evacuated from the rooftop due to sagging conditions towards the rear of the home. Firefighters could be seen through a second-story window pulling down ceilings after flames breached the cockloft, the area between the roof and ceiling.
