Three cops have been shot in two separate incidents in New York City Thursday evening.
One officer was shot and another was grazed inside the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station at 62nd Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
A suspect was shot and killed, the MTA said.
Medics rushed the wounded officers to Lutheran Medical Center. They are expected to recover.
N trains are bypassing the station while the NYPD investigates.
In a separate incident earlier Thursday, an off-duty police officer was shot inside a car dealership the Bronx.
Four men in a car pulled up to Boston Road Auto Mall at 3040 Boston Road. Two of the men went inside and forced the owner and the off-duty cop to the ground while they ransacked the dealership, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.
In disarming one gunman, the officer was shot in the leg. When officer arrived, they arrested the men, a source said.
The wounded cop was taken to Jacobi Medical Center.
