A man recently released from jail shot at officers with the Boston Police Department in a brazen broad-daylight attack.

According to the Boston Herald, police had responded to a call of a man with a gun threatening people in the city's South end on Saturday afternoon.  

Police found the man—identified as 40-year-old Tyler Brown—and attempted to make contact. Brown then reportedly opened fire.

None of the officers was struck, and they were able to apprehend and arrest the gunman.

Police Commissioner William Gross says he is thankful that no one was hurt, but pointed to "soft-on-crime judges" who let dangerous criminals walk free.

Brown is now due to be arraigned on charges including assault with intent to murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.
