Police say officers exchanged gunfire with a suspect in Queens on Sunday evening.

It was reported that no one was shot.

Investigators say it does not appear the officers were the intended targets, although a huge police presence was on hand as officers investigated.

The NYPD is investigating exactly what happened in the Arverne section of The Rockaways. They said it’s unclear at this point if the shots were intended to be fired at officers.

Police said it happened just after 5 p.m. in the area of Beach 66th Street and Beach Channel Drive.
