“The guy was on the sidewalk and running,” towards Weirfield Street when the cops showed up, a witness told The Post.

“They had their guns drawn, screaming ‘get your hands up! Drop the gun!’” the witness said. “He kept moving. He kept taking off. That’s when he got between the two cars and that’s when the cops fired.”
