A teenager is recovering in a Brooklyn hospital after investigators say he exchanged gunfire with police Monday night.

The New York City Police Department says officers responded to a call of shots fired just after 9:30 p.m. at an apartment building located at 2294 Atlantic Avenue in Brownsville.

Police found two men on a rooftop.

Investigators say a 16-year-old refused to drop his gun and opened fire.


Officers shot back, hitting him in each arm and in the leg.

He was taken to Brookdale Hospital.

An alleged accomplice, a 22-year-old man, was taken into custody.

The gun was recovered at the scene.

Charges are pending against both men.
