A Queens man has been arrested for allegedly attempting to shoot a police officer.

Christian Mosquera faces multiple charges, including attempted murder of an officer.

The 20-year-old allegedly fired at two police officers who told him to drop his weapon after they saw him trying to shoot another person in Elmhurst.

The incident happened early in the morning on June 21.

Police say the officers fired at Mosquera after he attempted to shoot them.

No one was injured, and Mosquera fled the scene.
