NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities say a 24-year-old Staten Island man running from officers in Brooklyn grabbed a loaded gun from his ankle and pointed it at the police, leading one of them to shoot him in the stomach.
Teddy Spann was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of A Weapon and Menacing a Police Officer in connection with the incident.
The NYPD says Spann suspect was transported to Kings County Hospital and was listed in stable condition with a graze wound to the abdomen after the incident around 9:40 p.m. Friday. The officers were treated for ringing of the ears.
Police say Spann was seen by the two officers tugging at his waistband and ran when police approached him.
The NYPD says a loaded .380 caliber firearm was found at the scene.
