Two police officers were shot and another was stabbed in Brooklyn on Wednesday night during a confrontation with a knife-wielding suspect, police said, according to multiple reports.
Police said one officer was shot in the arm and the other struck in the finger by gunfire. They were rushed to Kings County Hospital and are expected to survive, according to the New York Post. The suspect was taken into custody after he was shot several times by the officers, police added.
Brooklyn resident Jean Jones told The Post, I just heard gunshots, at least 16 if I was being conservative."

If the subject was wielding a knife, who shot the officers? Did their own 16 rounds strike each other?
"The incident started after a suspect approached an officer around 11:45 p.m. and stabbed him in the neck, a police source told the paper.
The officer and the suspect fought for the weapon, which caused gunfire to strike both the officers. The suspect was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, according to The Post.
Mayor Bill de Blasio was on his way to the hospital to check on the officers, according to a spokesperson. The area was filled police personnel and vehicles in the hour after the shooting."
I have to wonder how many of these attacks on cops are being perpetrated by prisoners set free because of civic and now getting revenge, either against specific cops or cops in general.
Knowing Blasio, he is probably going to visit the perpetrator, not the cops.
if i was that officer i would demand they keep de blah blah away from me
me too. I would tell him to f off
Ok bow and kneel while you get stabbed and shot. What kind of nonsense is this. Protests to blend into anarchy for a week. Give me a break....
Asking that they live, and recover.
There has been numerous innocent bystanders, business owners
protecting their property, and disgusted rioters who have been murdered during the riots the social media and mainstream media never mention.
Unclear if related to unrest, funny fox funny
I predicted that they would kill 2-3 cops during this attempt at revolution cleverly disguised as a riot. I stand by that prediction.
Perps prolly from the batch they released from prision a few months ago
