A Farmingdale man faces reckless endangerment and weapon possession charges after allegedly firing a handgun from a car Sunday morning in Massapequa, Nassau County police said.

According to Seventh Squad detectives, police responded to a 911 call of shots being fired in the vicinity of 6 Central Ave., Massapequa, at about 6:10 a.m.

At the scene, one of the officers saw two cars speeding north on Hicksville Road, police said.

After stopping only one of the vehicles, police said the passenger, Bryan J. Grossman, 20, 205 Sullivan Ave., and driver, Jonathan J. Mills, 26, of 6 Winter Lane, Amityville, were switching positions. The second speeding car got away, police said.

After the two exited the car, police said they found shell casings in the front floor of the vehicle.

Police allege that Grossman had fired multiple shots at the original address, after an altercation with several individuals, and that he had tossed a handgun from the car near Central Avenue. After a search of the area, police said they found a handgun on the lawn of a residence at the corner of Rhode Island at Hicksville Road.

Grossman is charged with possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, driving while impaired and several vehicle and traffic violations. Mills is charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle, driving while impaired and several vehicle and traffic law violations.

They are scheduled to be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
