NYPD officers shot in separate incidents

By Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Three New York City police officers are recovering after being shot in separate incidents that left one suspect dead and four under arrest.

The shootings occurred in a one-hour span Thursday night.

Off-duty Police Officer Juan Pichardo was shot in the thigh at his family's Bronx car dealership by one of two men who entered the business around 6:30 p.m.

An hour later in Brooklyn, two plainclothes transit officers were injured. Police say a man pulled a handgun from his waistband and opened fire. One of the officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

The city reported a record-low number of murders last year — 418. The previous low was 471, in 2009.

Last year, 11 police officers were shot while on duty and one while off duty, none of them fatal.
