FREEPORT, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a Long Island man fired several gunshots, striking a passing ambulance, during an argument with his brother.

Nassau County police say 29-year-old Eric Torres was in an argument with his brother Saturday morning in Freeport when he began shooting a handgun out of a window of his apartment on West Merrick Road.

Authorities say at least one of the bullets struck a passing ambulance. No one was injured.

Police say Torres refused to exit his apartment for more than an hour.

When he surrendered, officers arrested him on weapons possession, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief charges.

His brother was also arrested after police discovered he had an open warrant.

It was not immediately clear whether either of the men had attorneys who could comment on the allegations.
