An NYPD cop and a suspect were shot on Staten Island Thursday morning, police sources said.
Both the officer and the suspect’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.
The incident happened about 6 a.m. on residential Rockne St. near Elwood Ave.
The officer, conscious and alert, was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North. The suspect was taken to Richmond University Medical Center.
The officer is the second NYPD cop shot this week. On Tuesday night, a cop was grazed in the leg scuffling with a teen gunman in the Bronx. The teen fired, striking himself in the groin and the Officer Kaseem Pennant in the leg. The teen was charged, and Pennant was treated at a hospital and released.
