Cop shot in the Bronx - New York News

Police officers shot in separate incidents in New York

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Three NYPD officers were shot in two separate incidents in Brooklyn and the Bronx Thursday evening. All of the officers are expected to survive.

Police Officer Lukasz Kozicki and Police Officer Michael Lavay were shot on a subway train at the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station at 62nd Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

One cop shot and killed the suspect, police said.

Medics rushed the wounded officers to Lutheran Medical Center. They are expected to recover.

N trains bypassed the station while the NYPD investigated.

In a separate incident earlier Thursday, an off-duty police officer was shot inside a car dealership the Bronx.

Four men in a car pulled up to Boston Road Auto Mall at 3040 Boston Road. Two of the men went inside and forced the owner and the off-duty cop, Police Officer Juan Pichardo, to the ground while they ransacked the dealership, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.

In disarming one gunman, Pichardo was shot in the leg. When other officers arrived, they arrested the men, authorities said.

Pichardo was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition.

Mayor Mike Bloomberg visited the three hospitalized officers. He later made a statement praising their heroism and calling for tighter gun control laws.

"Tonight, thank God, three good guys - three New York City police officers, who acted heroically - are going to make it," Bloomberg said at Lutheran in Brooklyn. "But we owe it to the good guys to do whatever we can to protect them - just as they do whatever they can to protect us. Instead, Washington is letting the bad guys shoot our police officers, our children, our neighbors - and it just has to stop."
