3 U.S. soldiers and 1 suspect were injured in the Bronx shootout


Pensacola, Fl

Three US soldiers and a suspected militant were wounded in a shooting in New York City, according to three law enforcement sources.

The sources said, based on preliminary information, that the MPs were in the Bronx when they were searching for a suspect believed to be linked to the shooting of a state soldier in Massachusetts last month during a traffic stop.

Law enforcement officials said that gunfire broke out at around 5:30 a.m.

The shooting left the suspect seriously wounded and several US Marshals with non-life-threatening injuries, according to officials.

It was not clear how severe the injuries were, but law enforcement officials said the US infantry was in stable condition.

The station reported that American infantry were hospitalized at the Jacoby Medical Center in the Bronx.

A 28-year-old state soldier was shot in the right hand during a traffic stop in the Hyannis neighborhood of Cape Cod.

Police said the officer was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was released after three days.

Massachusetts state police said the alleged gunman was Andre Sterling, who is facing charges of possession of a firearm, armed assault with intent to kill and other crimes.
