2 Officers Lucky to be Alive After Being Shot Overnight in The Bronx


Two cops arrived at Beaumont Avenue and East 187th Street (Belmont) at around 8:00 PM, after a report came in of a man with a gun.

They found a man sitting in front of a home and asked the suspect to take his hands out of his pockets. The suspect immediately drew a firearm and began shooting as a brawl broke out.

A female officer was shot twice in the arm. Shea says she returned fire about five times, striking the assailant about three times.

The second officer, an eight-year veteran, was struck once while struggling with the suspect. The bullet entered in his armpit and exited the front of his chest.

Thankfully the officers are listed in stable condition and expected to survive.
