Two juveniles pointed fake guns at a Brooklyn synagogue Wednesday night as the Jewish nation is under attack by Hamas terrorists overseas.
Police received a 911 call around 7:40 p.m. stating that a small group of young men armed with guns were posted outside Congregation B’nai Yosef on Ocean Parkway in Gravesend, according to cops.
When officers arrived, they found two male juveniles with an “imitation firearm” and placed them into custody, police said.
The replica gun may have been a gel pellet gun, which the suspects fired at the building, law enforcement sources said.
The Flatbush Shmira, which assisted the NYPD in capturing the pair, described the firearm as a BB gun and posted an image of an officer holding a black-and-red imitation assault rifle.
No one was hurt in the incident, which is under investigation.
The NYPD said it was in the preliminary stages of its investigation and has not yet determined if its hate crimes task force with join the probe.
