NYPD officer saved by vest after being shot 3 times in Brooklyn

An NYPD officer was shot three times after approaching a gun wielding man minutes after a nearby fatal shooting and crash in Brooklyn last night.

The 28-year-old officer was struck in the rear of his bulletproof vest, as well as in his leg and buttocks, near Macon Street and Howard Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The injured officer fired nine shots in return, and another officer fired a dozen rounds, striking the 26-year-old suspect in the leg.

The officer was rushed to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.

"He’s in surprisingly good spirits, thankful to be alive," Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said. "When you take a look at that vest and see quickly what the alternatives could be, we are just very very thankful. We are expecting a full recovery."

The suspect, 26-year-old Boyce Hayward, is identified by police as a reputed member of the Young Stackers gang. He was taken to Brookdale University Hospital and is also expected to survive.
