US- Gunfire erupts in Rockland County neighborhood, five arrested

Ns News Online Desk:Ns News Online Desk: New York-Five people were arrested in connection to a wild, caught-on-video shootout in an affluent Rockland County neighborhood over the weekend.

Home security footage obtained by The Post shows multiple gunshots suddenly ringing out around 1:45 p.m. Saturday in New City — as a man blows snow from his front walkway.

Several people can be seen fleeing the home where the shooting occurred and running down the street.

The man blowing snow then realizes what is happening and runs inside.

Sources told The Post that the suspects were part of a rap music video being filmed at 3 Turnberry Court, which had been rented on Airbnb.

Officers from the Clarkstown Police Department arrived at the home on the call of shots fired and saw a black Mercedes fleeing, officials said in a statement. Police chased the car until it hit a utility pole, at which point all five suspects inside bolted in different directions on foot, police said.

Clarkstown police and deputies from the Rockland County Sheriff’s Department worked together and collared all five suspects within minutes of the initial 911 call, according to police. Four handguns were recovered during the arrest.

Sources told The Post that an additional 10 guns were uncovered inside the home. All five suspects are from Brooklyn. One of them is a minor. Their identities were not immediately made available by law enforcement. Charges were pending the suspects’ arraignment, police said.

In the surveillance video, a woman could be heard screaming in the distance when the gunfire stops.

“What was that?” she screeches.

The man returns to his snow blower out front and tells someone inside his home to close the door. Another neighbor runs down the street and yells “Call 911!” several times. “The black car is leaving!” he added.

“Stay inside,” the man tells the neighbor, adding that the police are being contacted.
