3 Hurt In Police Involved Shooting On Staten Island

NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP) — Three people were hurt in a police involved shooting on Staten Island Friday, the NYPD said.

The shooting happened just before 1:30 p.m. in front of the Manor Heights Shopping Plaza on Manor Road in Castleton Corners.

Two plain clothes detectives from the Staten Island District Attorney’s Office were conducting a drug investigation of two men in a white Hyundai at the scene.  One officer suffered arm and leg injuries as the car sped away and was taken to the hospital.

The other officer fired several shots at the fleeing car, 1010 WINS’ Kathleen Maloney reported.

1010 WINS Kathleen Maloney spoke with witnesses who describe the shooting.

The 24-year-old driver suffered a graze wound to the head and was hospitalized. His 18-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries when the bullet went through the windshield.

Police say the officers noticed the two men in some type of drug exchange in the car parked at a shopping center. When they went to the car, the driver rammed the detectives. Only one officer fired. Oxycontin pills and cocaine were found in the car.

The two sped off and were arrested about a mile away by other officers responding to the scene.

    Because a deadly weapon (car) was being used against them. I don’t care what the patrol guide says.

    The judge will again release the suspects……….NYC judges need to get kicked in the @ss and have these perps live in their households.

      Knowone??? really?

      I guess you are upset the police didn’t play by the “rules”. The suspects were getting away fair and square and the police should just let them go, right?

      If you going to defend criminals at least learn how to spell… or just use spell check!
