2 NYPD Officers Shot In Fordham

Two Police Officers responding to a robbery were shot at East 184th Street and Tiebout Ave.

According to sources, the officers are both expected to survive.

They were both transported to St. Barnabas Hospital.  One officer is being treated for a back wound and the other for an arm wound.

Councilman Ritchie Torres released a statement on the shootings:

“I am saddened by the news that two NYC Police Officers were shot in the line of duty while preventing an armed robbery in the Fordham section of the Bronx. As the Council Member who represents the area, I ask all New Yorkers to keep these officers and their family in your prayers, as I will in mine.”

“Tonight’s shooting underscores, in the most painfully human terms, the extraordinary risk that officers take in keeping our neighborhoods safe from violent crime. The two criminals responsible for the shootings deserve no mercy at all: they should be swiftly apprehended and prosecuted aggressively to the fullest extent of the law.

This comes just one day after Det. Wenjian Liu’s funeral from being tragically executed alongside Det. Rafael Ramos by a crazed gunman.

There is currently a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of the suspect.  Anyone with information can contact the NYPD at 1-800-577-TIPS
