Police have identified a man they say opened fire on a pair of police officers in Queens.

Investigators are looking for Antonio Olmeda, 53. They say he fired twice at the officers at 37th Road and 76th Street in Jackson Heights on December 2.

Officers say Olmeda is the man seen running in the above surveillance video.

A passerby had told the two officers that a man was acting suspiciously.

The officers saw the man wearing a trench coat with a fake beard, a hat and dark glasses.

When the officers approached him, police say he started shooting and ran away.

The two officers were not hurt and eventually recovered the beard, hat and glasses.

A $10,000 cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the gunman.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
