NEW YORK — Two Harlem cops yesterday fired a staggering 84 shots at an armed thug after he squeezed off one round at them — but the punk incredibly survived and was charged with slaying his sleeping kid sister and trying to kill their mother, authorities said.

The 3:30 a.m. explosion of gunfire terrified residents near 155th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

"It was like a shootout in the movies!" said one shocked tenant of the Polo Grounds Houses.
