VIDEO: 2 NYPD Officers Shot Responding to Robbery Call

Authorities are questioning a person in connection with the Monday night shootings of two NYPD officers responding to a robbery call in the Bronx, police and law enforcement sources say, reports NBC New York.

The individual being questioned went to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in upper Manhattan with a gunshot wound to the back. Authorities are investigating if the person is connected to the shootings of 30-year-old NYPD officer Andrew Dossi and 38-year-old officer Aliro Pellerano.

Pellerano was shot in the abdomen and arm near East 184th Street and Tiebout Avenue in Fordham at around 10:30 p.m. Monday, officials said at a news conference early Tuesday. Dossi was shot in the arm and lower back. Both are in stable condition at St. Barnabas Hospital, the NYPD said.

The officers, who were in plain clothes, were part of a group of five officers responding to a call about a robbery at a grocery store on East 180th Street in the Bronx, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. The officers were approaching two suspects who had just entered a nearby restaurant when one of the suspects opened fire, Bratton said. The officers returned fire and two of the officers were wounded. The suspects carjacked a vehicle and fled.
