Off-duty officer grazed by bullet in the Bronx, NYPD says

An off-duty police officer was grazed in the shoulder by a bullet early Tuesday morning in the Bronx, the NYPD said. 

The 33-year-old officer was in his personal car on East 137th Street, between Brown Place and Willis Avenue, in Mott Haven shortly after midnight when two groups of men started shooting at each other.

A stray bullet went through the driver’s side window of the officer’s car and grazed his right shoulder, cops said.

Another bullet went through a home, Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said, but no other injuries were reported. At least 14 shots were fired, Shea said.

The officer, who did not fire his weapon, was treated and released from NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln and "is in good shape," Shea said.

A video of the shooting was released by the NYPD.

No arrests have been made and the investigation was ongoing.
