Two NYPD officers shot in the Bronx; suspect dead

New York (CNN) – Two New York Police Department officers who were shot in the Bronx on Thursday night are in good condition while the suspected shooter is dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said.

The two officers, one male and one female, were on a patrol in a housing complex in the South Bronx when they and another officer encountered two men in a stairwell, First Deputy Commissioner Benjamin Tucker told reporters.

One of the men in the stairwell fired at the officers and fled to an apartment of an acquaintance.
