New Year’s salute

A 27-year-old man was arrested on Jan. 1 after he was caught firing off a pistol on Ocean Avenue — just moments after midnight.

Cops from the 70th Precinct were on patrol when they heard a series of shots between Church Avenue and Albemarle Road.

When they went to investigate, they saw the suspect shooting a . 38 caliber pistol into the air as he celebrated the start of 2011.

As cops approached, the gunman ran into a nearby building, where he was later located and taken into custody without incident.
