An off-duty New York City correction officer was caught firing a gun in the air in Hells Kitchen, police said Sunday.
Correction Officer Kadeem Luton, 30, allegedly opened fire on W. 46th St. and 11th Ave. about 10:50 pm Saturday, cops said. Nobody was struck.
Luton passed the gun to a pal, Joshua Kingsley, 29, who also let off some rounds, according to police.
A startled witness called 911.
Cops arrested both men for criminal possession of a loaded firearm, criminal use of a firearm and reckless endangerment. Their arraignments were pending in Manhattan Criminal Court Sunday.
