Police are searching for two men suspected of shooting two NYPD officers responding to a robbery call in the Bronx on Monday night. One officer was shot in the back and the other in the arm (neither injury is life-threatening). The two plainclothes officers approached suspects who had entered a restaurant when one fired on the officers. The officers returned fire before the suspects fled on foot, carjacked a couple, and then abandoned the vehicle and continued on foot. The two cops were not targeted, unlike the Dec. 20 slaying of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in Brooklyn, according to police. The shooting occurred just hours after Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton touted record-low crime figures in the Big Apple.
