The officers saw a 27-year old man with a gun in his hand.
According to police, one officer exited the unmarked police vehicle and approached the suspect; when he pointed the firearm in the officer's direction, two officers fired their weapons at the suspect.
The man fled on foot but was apprehended a few blocks later on West 112th street and 5th Avenue.

The officers were transported to St. Luke's Hospital for tinnitus.
Charges against the suspect are pending as the investigation continues.
