One officer returned fire before the suspects fled into Manhattan’s northernmost enclave, police said.

No one was hurt, but the officers were checked at the hospital for tinnitus, which is standard procedure after the police used their weapons.

Five suspects in the robbery attempt remained on the run Thursday morning, according to the NYPD.
