An alleged carjacker rammed a stolen vehicle into a Brooklyn funeral home during a wake service Thursday evening, police said.

According to police and eyewitnesses, three suspects took a blue Dodger Hellcat at gunpoint and rammed the vehicle into the gate of the House of Hills Funeral Home on St. John’s Place in Crown Heights.

Police said the carjacking victim was not in the vehicle at the time of the accident and the three accused fled on foot.

According to the owner of the funeral home, no one was hurt.
