NYPD cops shoot suspect who fired on them: police sources

NYPD officers shot a suspect who fired at them Thursday after a botched break-in at the Bronx home of a woman who previously accused him of sexual assault, police sources said.

The gunfire — which also left a bystander shot — happened at 3950 Bronx Boulevard around 1:30 p.m., the sources said.

No officers were shot in Thursday’s incident, but one cop was taken to the hospital for evaluation after suffering a fall, the sources said.

The suspect was struck two times — once in the abdomen and once the arm — and was in serious but stable condition in custody at Jacobi Hospital, the sources said.

The suspect’s condition wasn’t immediately known, but he was taken into custody. The bystander’s condition was also not immediately available.

The suspect, identified by sources as Yoskar Feliz, was allegedly trying to break into the home of a woman who had accused him of sexual assault and holding her hostage on Jan. 9.

He was hit with rape and other charges and freed on $50,000 bail.

Police were looking for the gun in a nearby body of water, a police source said.

Police tweeted out a warning telling drivers to avoid the area.

The violence came just hours after an officer was shot and wounded during a drug raid in Staten Island.
