NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton says shots being fired at someone else missed two nearby police officers in Brooklyn.

The Sergeants Benevolent Association initially said four males drove past the officers Tuesday night and fired before fleeing.

Bratton said Wednesday that investigators reviewed video and determined that someone else was the intended target.

The department has taken extra precautions since the recent killings of police officers in Dallas and other places.
