It did not take Mr. Prioleau long to return to his old ways, the police said. Around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, he was walking near the Gowanus Houses public housing complex in Brooklyn, on the edge of the Boerum Hill neighborhood. And, the police said, he had a gun.

Two plainclothes officers who were patrolling the area in an unmarked car said they saw Mr. Prioleau, 30, shooting at another man near the intersection of Baltic and Hoyt Streets, the police said. They jumped out of the car and ordered Mr. Prioleau to drop his weapon.

The officers opened fire and dozens of rounds shattered the autumn night. When it was over, Mr. Prioleau lay mortally wounded, a 9-millimeter pistol near him, and the man he had apparently targeted had fled.

Chief Terence A. Monahan, the Police Department’s highest-ranking uniformed officer, said that the officers, whom he did not name, “immediately identified themselves as police and gave multiple orders to drop the weapon.”

Mr. Prioleau not only did not comply, but he pointed his pistol at the officers, the chief said.

“The perpetrator was discharging his gun at somebody else,” Chief Monahan said. “The cops happen to be there when he did it. So he turned his gun on them.”

It remained unclear whether Mr. Prioleau had fired his weapon at the officers. The police were still looking for the second man on Wednesday, officials said.

The officers were members of an anti-crime unit, an elite, aggressive team whose main mission is taking guns out of criminals’ hands. Anti-crime units often respond to reports of people armed with guns, or to sounds of gunfire.

It is dangerous work. Last month, an anti-crime officer in the Bronx, Brian Mulkeen, 33, wrestled an armed man to the ground. As they struggled, other officers on the scene opened fire, killing Mr. Mulkeen and the other man.

Chief Monahan said on Tuesday that the gunman in the Brooklyn, later identified as Mr. Priouleau, had “an extensive criminal history, including multiple violent felony convictions.”

Shanduke McPhatter, a Brooklyn anti-gang activist, said that it was important to residents of the neighborhood that there be a full accounting of the police’s response and an assurance that the officers had not been “excessively shooting.”

“We just want to get the facts, and that’s what we’re focused on,” Mr. McPhatter said. “We want to see who fired how many shots.”

The man was at the 225th Street subway station, firing shots from the southbound platform when officers responded, officials said. The officers fired several rounds, hitting the man once in the shoulder. He was hospitalized in stable condition, officials said.
