Basket of bullets

Cops recovered a gun from an East Flatbush home following an assault on May 22.

Officers from the 67th Precinct were called to the East 26th Street home between Clarendon Road and Avenue D at 2 a.m. after getting a report that a 37-year-old resident was in possession of a handgun.

The man had reportedly flashed the pistol during a physical altercation with another man at the address a half hour earlier, police were told.

When responding officers entered the apartment, they allegedly found a .40 caliber Ruger sitting on top of items in an open basket, along with several clips of ammunition.

Cops took the resident, who was not named, into custody, charging him with criminal possession of a weapon and assault in the third degree.
