To politimenn ble mandag kveld skutt i bydelen Bronx i New York. Ingen av skadene skal være livstruende. Det er frykt for at drap på politi kan bli «smittsomt».

Politimennene var i sivil. Det sies at den som skjøt ikke siktet på politimennene. Det er ikke sikkert at det dreier seg et bevisst angrep.

Two New York City police officers were shot in the Bronx on Monday night, the police said. One officer was shot in the back, and another officer was grazed by a bullet, a police official said.
“None of the injuries seem to be life-threatening,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation. “They’re both nonfatal right now.”
Immediately after the shootings, the police official said the assailant was not in custody, adding “one person outstanding.”
