Cops are looking for four men connected to a reckless endangerment incident after one of the suspects allegedly fired a gun at a vehicle in south Williamsburg.

Authorities said that on May 19, three men arrived at Wallabout Street and Union Avenue shortly after 7:40 p.m., before exiting their vehicle to join a fourth man that was already at the location.

One of the individuals displayed a gun and fired off one round in the direction of an unknown vehicle, according to police, who are unsure as to why the suspect opened fire in the first place.

Police say three men re-entered the vehicle they arrived in and fled westbound on Wallabout Street, while the fourth man fled on foot in the opposite direction. 

No injuries or property damage were reported but police have deemed the incident reckless endangerment and are seeking the four suspects.

The NYPD’s 90th Precinct released a photo of two of the men involved in the May 19 incident, asking the public to get in touch if they recognize the perps.
