NEW ROCHELLE - An off-duty NYPD officer is accused of firing a gun during a heated argument in New Rochelle.

Police say the chaos unfolded outside an apartment building on Lincoln Avenue just after 1 a.m. Saturday morning.    

Officials say 25-year-old officer and New Rochelle resident Jamarie Flowers fired off a barrage of shots during a tense argument with others at the building.

Flowers allegedly raised his gun in the air to sound off the shots, waking up many in the building.

No one was injured from the shots fired.

The suspect is the second member of the force accused of firing unlawful shots this week. On Thursday, Officer Brendan Cronin seriously injured a civilian after shooting at his car parked at a traffic light six times.

Police say Flowers is being held on first-degree charges of reckless endangerment.

He's been suspended without pay from the NYPD.
