Cop in shootout with suspected Co-op City thieves

Charges are pending against a man who police say was involved in a shootout with an off-duty cop in Co-op City Thursday.

According to officials, the police officer confronted two men trying to steal a motorcycle at Bellamy Loop and Cross City Boulevard. Police say one of the suspects pointed a firearm at the cop, leading her to shoot the man in his ankle.

The men fled, but the investigation led police to Lincoln Hospital where one of the men was being treated for his wound. Charges are expected to be filed against the suspect, who is listed in stable condition.

The investigation is ongoing.
