2 arrested in shooting that wounded 2 NYC police officers
(AP) - Police have arrested two people in the shooting of two New York City plainclothes officers responding to a robbery.
One suspect was captured Tuesday, about 12 hours after the shooting in the Bronx. Another turned up at the hospital with a gunshot wound in his arm and doctors notified police.
Charges are pending.
The officers were coming off their shift Monday night when they responded to a report of a grocery store robbery. They approached suspects at a Chinese restaurant. The shooter opened fire from inside the restaurant, and police fired back.
The shooting came about two weeks after two officers were fatally shot while sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said the officers went "above and beyond the call to protect their fellow New Yorkers."
