Cops arrest BB gun snipers accused of firing at police car

Cops nabbed two BB gun snipers who were allegedly among a foursome firing pellets at a marked police car in the Bronx on this week.

The four snipers were on the roof of a residential building at Aqueduct Avenue and West 192nd Street in Fordham Manor at 1 a.m. on Friday when one of them fired the air gun at the police cruiser, damaging its windshield and roof, cops said.

The officers inside were not injured.

Cops arrested Brandon Santiago, 21, and Heriberto Maldanado, 19, later on Friday. Both were charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, criminal trespass and criminal possession of a weapon, according to police. Both live near the scene of the crime.

Surveillance video shows the two outstanding suspects — a man and a woman, both around 20 years old, running down a staircase after the incident.
