Two NYPD officers were shot and a third was stabbed in a confrontation with a suspect in Brooklyn late Wednesday, police and sources said.

The melee unfolded when a suspect approached an officer on Church Avenue near Flatbush Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. and stabbed him in the neck, a police source told the New York Post.

Several officers responded and one pulled his firearm, the sources said.

The officer and the suspect struggled for the weapon, which went off, striking one officer in the hand and another in the arm.

A sergeant responded and fired on the suspect, who was critically wounded.

The officers were rushed to Kings County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
