Two NYPD wounded, driver shot dead at Brooklyn car stop

Two NYPD officers were injured when a 21-year-old man sped from a Brooklyn traffic stop and dragged one of the officers with him, police said.

Police said none of the injuries were life-threatening during a Saturday morning briefing at the crime scene.

The wild episode happened at 3:55 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Broadway and Lorimer Streets in Williamsburg, according to NYPD Deputy Chief John Chell, commandant of the Brooklyn North Detectives.

Four uniformed officers in an unmarked car assigned to the 90th Precinct Public Safety Division responded to gunshots fired from a nightclub near the intersection.

Officers later tracked down the vehicles believed to be involved in the incident and began speaking to one of the drivers, who drove away in his white Honda CRV after about a minute.

The fleeing driver hit one of the officers, police said, who said one of the officers involved fired his gun three times at the car.

Police conducted a pursuit that ended with two officers firing their guns at Meeker Avenue and Vandervoort Avenue, police said. Two people were taken into custody.

About 20 minutes later, a 21-year-old man – believed to be the driver of the white Honda – walked into Wyckoff Hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest, Chell said. The man is in stable condition and charges are pending, police officers said.

An officer standing “a foot or two” in front of the white car was hit in the leg and knee. Another officer sustained a hand injury, police said.

Chell said investigators were still working on the episode.
