BROOKLYN — A man was shot in the hand by NYPD officers after he drew a gun while they were trying to detain another man near the Farragut Houses Tuesday afternoon, police said.
Four plainclothes police officers in an unmarked police car were driving south on Gold Street when they spotted a wanted man on the side of 177 Sands St. around 3:45 p.m., police said.
When the officers walked up to him, another man drew a gun out of the waistband of his pants, according to the NYPD. The police officers drew their guns and three of them shot at the armed suspect.
The man with the gun ran into 237 Nassau St., where he was arrested inside a third-floor apartment, police said.
The suspect, who suffered a gunshot wound to the left hand, was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.
The man who was initially spotted by officers also ran, but he was also arrested, police said.
No officers were injured in the shooting, though they were all evaluated at Methodist Hospital.
A search warrant has been obtained for the apartment at 237 Nassau St., and an investigation is ongoing, police said.
Charges were expected to be filed against the suspects.
