Two NYPD officers shot Monday night

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Two New York City police officers responding to a robbery have been shot in the Bronx.

Authorities say the officers were taken to the hospital with injuries believed to be non-life threatening. One officer apparently suffered a graze wound on the arm and the other was hit in the back, authorities say. It happened shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday on East 184th Street in the borough’s Tremont section.

Police were searching for at least one suspect who fled the scene.

The shooting comes about two weeks after two officers were gunned down in their patrol car in Brooklyn by a man who vowed online to kill “pigs.” The man opened fire, then ran into a subway where he shot himself to death. The second officer was buried on Sunday.
