An unruly mob on a Brooklyn street corner erupted in violence and gunfire late Saturday, leaving three officers with minor injuries.
At least some of the injuries were caused by “air mail,” or objects thrown down at cops from rooftops, police at the scene told The Post.
One officer needed to be hoisted onto a gurney by medics, who rushed him from the sidewalk outside Marcy Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant at around 11:10 p.m.
By early Sunday, eight people had been arrested on charges of disorderly conduct.
“Straight up cowards!” one man in the crowd there shouted at cops at just after midnight. “You don’t know how to do anything you f—g coward!”
At least six or seven gunshots rang out from a rooftop of the housing project shortly afterward, sending scores of cops running toward the gunfire.
By 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, small roving bands of angry residents were still taunting police officers.
