I Vectors in Minkowski space and parity

It is known that vectors change them sing under the influence of parity when ##(x,z,y)## change into ##(-x,-z,-y)##
$$P: y_{i} \rightarrow -y_{i}$$
where ##i=1,2,3##
But what about vectors in Minkowski space? Is it true that
$$P: y_{\mu} \rightarrow -y_{\mu}$$
where ##\mu=0,1,2,3##.
If yes how one can check it?

The action of parity reversal is the same for the space components. Time reversal changes the sign of the T bits.
