June 17, 2010  | 

An off-duty MTA Bridges and Tunnels cop shot at a group of attackers - striking one - during an early-morning road rage beatdown in the Bronx on Wednesday, cops said.

Edward Aiken, 38, was on his way to his job on Randalls Island, exiting from the southbound Major Deegan Expressway about 5:20 a.m., when he was rear-ended by another car, causing his car to hit a guardrail, police and MTA officials said.
