3 suspects questioned in wounding of 2 NYC plainclothes officers responding to robbery

Three suspects were being questioned Tuesday about the shootings of two New York City plainclothes police officers responding to a grocery store robbery, authorities said.

NEW YORK — Three suspects were being questioned Tuesday about the shootings of two New York City plainclothes police officers responding to a grocery store robbery, authorities said.

One of the suspects was seen on a surveillance video from the crime scene in the Bronx, police said. No charges have been filed.

Both officers are listed in stable condition.

The shooting occurred around 10:30 p.m. Monday. The officers were coming off their shift when they and three other plainclothes officers responded to the robbery report.

“They went above and beyond the call to protect their fellow New Yorkers. Thank God the officers are doing well and will recover,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at the hospital where the officers are recovering.

The shooting came about two weeks after two officers were fatally shot while sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn, and on the same day that the city touted record low crime levels.

Those death of the two officers raised tensions between police and de Blasio. Police unions said the mayor has stoked anti-police sentiment by supporting protests against the police killings of unarmed black men in New York and Missouri.
