Large Manhunt Underway, Reward Offered After Two NYPD Officers Shot Responding to Robbery Call

$10,000 reward offered leading to arrest.

UPDATE, Jan. 6, 8:00 a.m. ET:

Police have issued a surveillance video clearly showing one of the suspects:

A manhunt was underway late Monday night after two plainclothes NYPD officers suffered non-life threatening injures when they were shot in the Bronx while searching for suspects in an armed burglary.

The officers, who were rushed to a local-area hospital, were both in stable condition and expected to survive their injuries. One was shot in his left arm and lower back, the other in his chest.

New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton said during a news conference early Tuesday morning the officers were fired upon after they spotted two robbery suspects near a Chinese restaurant. The officers returned fire, possibly injuring one of the suspects.

The suspects fled the scene before crashing a carjacked white Camaro, authorities said.

Police have since recovered a 44-caliber gun which matched the weapon used in the robbery.

The suspects remain at large and a $10,000 reward is being offered by law-enforcement for information that will lead to the arrest of the shooters.

The shooting comes just more than two weeks after two officers were gunned down in their patrol car in Brooklyn by a man who vowed online to kill “pigs.” The man later committed suicide.

The second officer was buried on Sunday.
