NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police shot and wounded a suspect who was allegedly seen stabbing a woman Saturday night in the South Bronx.

Officers on patrol were dispatched around 8:30 p.m. to 560 Morris Ave. in the Bronx, where they allegedly found the suspect stabbing a woman in their 20s multiple times, police told 1010 WINS.

Officers responded by shooting the suspect, police said.

Both the suspect and the woman were reported in critical condition at an area hospital.

The incident marked the third police-involved shooting in 24 hours.

Just before 3 a.m. in Harlem, officers fired shots at a suspect who allegedly pointed a gun as they chased him around 111th Street and Lenox Avenue. The suspect was not hit.

John Bradley, 27, was later charged with assault of a police officer with a deadly weapon, criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, and criminal mischief.

Around 4:30 a.m. in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, officers spotted three young men entering a van in which police were safeguarding a gun being held as evidence in an earlier shooting. After they ignored orders to stop, an officer shot and wounded a 17-year-old boy, while a second teen was arrested.

Both suspects were in police custody Saturday night, while the third suspect fled.
