NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD is investigating a shooting involving two of their own officers in the Bronx.
Police say they shot a man who pointed a gun at them early Saturday morning, but it turns out that gun was fake, CBS2’s Marc Liverman reports.
“Two uniformed officers discharged their weapons, striking the suspect in the torso. The officers immediately rendered aid to the suspect and requested an ambulance to the scene,” NYPD Chief of Patrol Fausto Pichardo said.
