When the officers arrived on scene, police say they encountered a man who was brandishing a silver revolver. After several orders to drop the gun, police say the suspect pointed the firearm at the officers. One of the officers fired one round, striking the suspect once in the torso according to police.
Investigators say the suspect ran roughly 200 feet before he collapsed. Medics responded to the scene and rushed him to NYC Health+Hospitals/Jacobi with non-life threatening injuries.
Shortly afterwards, officers found an injured man they believe was previously shot by the suspect nearby. He was also rushed to Jacobi, where he remains in critical condition.
The officers involved were rushed to Montefiore Hospital, where they were being treated for tinnitus.
Investigators said they recovered a firearm at the scene and were not searching for additional suspects.
Wednesday’s shooting was the latest in a string of violent encounters involving the NYPD of late. Surveillance video exclusively obtained by CBS2 from December 5th shows a wild shootout between a fleeing robbery suspect and an NYPD officer giving chase in the University Heights section of the Bronx. Over the weekend, Officer Amir Pali was accidentally shot by another cop while responding to a domestic dispute on Staten Island that took a violent turn.
