NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two New York police officers shot a suspect who pointed a gun at them in East Harlem early Sunday morning, authorities said.
The 23-year-old suspect was listed in critical but stable condition at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center after the shooting around 2 a.m, police said. He was shot multiple times in the torso, authorities told 1010 WINS’ Derricke Dennis.
Police said they responded to a 911 call about a large disorderly group and a man with a firearm in the Washington Houses at East 102nd Street and Second Avenue, and that the suspect fled on foot when they arrived. The suspect turned and pointed a .22-caliber revolver at the officers and they then fired, police said.
