NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say two New York City Police officers have been injured in a shootout with a suspect who crashed his car into a police vehicle.

NYPD Commissioner William Bratton says the officers were hurt in a confrontation in Brooklyn just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday. One officer was struck in his bulletproof vest and suffered blunt force trauma. The other was shot in the hip. Both are in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.

Officials say the suspect, Jamal Funes, was shot multiple times. He was in critical condition.

Officers had heard gunfire and as they approached Funes, he pointed a revolver and fled. Officials say Funes rammed his vehicle into a patrol car. Officers opened fire, striking Funes several times. A .357 revolver was found in the front seat of his car.
