Two men were arrested and charged with reckless endangerment after police officers responding to a 911 call reporting shots fired found a group of men firing a shotgun and rifle into a park area early Tuesday evening in Riverhead.
The officers were not injured in the incident, which took place near Suffolk County parkland along Sound Avenue just after 6 p.m., police said.
But, Riverhead Town police said, several shots were fired from an adjacent home, "just missing the officers, with the bullets traveling into the park."
Scott Willet Jr., 19, of Rocky Point, and Travis Albrecht, 22, of Aquebogue, were arrested on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment, police said. Arraignment details were not immediately available.
Police said the two men were in a group that fired shotguns and a Saiga 7.62x39 MK Sportsman rifle from behind a home on Sound Avenue. Saiga is from a family of Russian semi-automatic rifles that includes the AK-47.
The rifle and ammunition were confiscated at the scene.
Police said an investigation into the incident is continuing and that additional charges are expected in the case.
