An NYPD traffic agent's vehicle was shot at, apparently by a person armed by a pellet gun, in Inwood this morning. At least four shots were fired at the front window of the vehicle, as it traveled north on Cooper Street near West 204th Street.

The shots punctured but did not shatter the front window. The traffic enforcement agent was not injured.

No arrests were immediately made. Police were investigating what sparked the shooting.

Traffic enforcement agents are civilian members of the NYPD. One of their primary responsibilities is to issue summonses to illegally parked vehicles.
