2 NYPD officers shot, wounded in the Bronx

Police say two NYPD officers were shot and wounded in the Tremont section of the Bronx Monday night.



The incident occurred on East 184th Street shortly after 10:30 p.m. while the officers were responding to a robbery.



One officer was wounded in the arm, and the other was struck in the back, police say. They were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and are expected to be OK.



Deputy Chief Kim Royster says the officers were not targeted by the gunman.



A manhunt is underway for at at least two suspects, authorities say.



A $10,000 reward is being offered for anyone with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
