Two teens threw a large, lit firework at a group of cops officers on Staten Island on the Fourth of July, cop sources said Wednesday.

“Get the fuck off my block!” one of the teens yelled at officers, who took cover behind a parked vehicle on York Ave near Van Buren St in New Brighton at 10:45 Pm Tuesday. One of youths then threw a large fireworks mortar at the cops and ran off. The firework damaged an NYPD patrol vehicle, but the three officers were not injured, authorities told. Police searched the area for the teens, who remain on the loose, cops said.
