Suspect Injured in Police-Involved Shooting

A suspect has been injured after a shooting in Brooklyn.

Three undercover officers responded to reports of shots fired at Rochester Avenue and Sterling Place in Crown Heights around 1:30 on Friday morning.  They encountered a suspect who ignored orders to drop his gun.

“One of the officers in the vehicle was a sergeant.  He exited the vehicle.  At that point, he discharged his weapon at least two times, striking the male one time in the thigh,” NYPD Assistant Chief Jeffrey Maddrey said.

The suspect tried to flee after being shot, but was apprehended.  The man was taken to the hospital.

A weapon was recovered.
