Cop shoots suspect on Bronx subway platform in 2nd police-involved shooting of nightOctober 16, 2019
A police officer shot a suspect on a Bronx subway platform early Wednesday morning — the city’s second police-involved shooting in a matter of hours, authorities said.
The officer approached the man on the No. 5 train platform at White Plains Road and 225th Street at about 12:20 a.m., cops said.
The man was holding an object cops believed to be a handgun — and the responding officer fired at him, hitting him in the shoulder, police said.
The suspect was rushed to a nearby hospital and is expected to recover, authorities said.
The officer was also taken to a hospital for evaluation, but was not injured in the shooting.
The incident was the second police-involved shooting in less than five hours in the city.
At about 8 p.m. in Brooklyn, two plainclothes officers shot a gun-wielding suspect after seeing him open fire at rival on a street near a Gowanus housing project.
The suspect was shot several times, but was expected to recover.
