Officer wounded, suspect killed in Manhattan police shooting
NEW YORK (AP) - Police say an officer was wounded in a broad daylight gunbattle in upper Manhattan that left one suspect dead.
It happened at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Washington Heights as officers were responding to a 911 call of shots fired. The 5 ½-year veteran is expected to survive.

Police say the officer had spotted a suspect with a handgun run into a parking lot. As the officer pursues him on foot, police say the suspect takes cover behind a car and fires three rounds.

The officer fires back once before being struck in the armpit.

At the same time, police say the officer's partner drives an unmarked patrol car into the parking lot and engages fire with the suspect, fatally striking him once in the chest.

The handgun was recovered.
