Police spent several hours searching a public housing project yesterday afternoon for a man they said fired on narcotics officers and may have been shot in the arm himself.

Plainclothes officers approached two men after witnessing a hand-to-hand drug deal in the courtyard behind 150 Maujer St. in Williamsburg about 1:20 p.m., police said. One of the men pulled out a gun and there was a quick exchange of gunfire with the officers.
