Police say a New York City officer was shot and wounded in Brooklyn by a gunman who later committed suicide.
Members of the NYPD and FDNY swarmed Chestnut Avenue, near Ridgewood Avenue, in Cypress Hills just before 4:55 p.m. after reports of shots fired, the spokeswoman said. When the officers entered, the man opened fire, striking one in the right arm as he entered a bedroom.

Eric Phillips, spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio, said the mayor was on his way to Jamaica Hospital Center. The call was from a woman who said her 29-year-old mentally deranged son was in their residence in Brooklyn with her.
The disturbed man remained inside the rear bedroom after the shooting, police said.
"What could have been just another day, just another call turned into something much worse, and thank God our officer's going to come through it", de Blasio said. The officers were not sure about what weapon Sookdeo used to shoot Nguyen, but they later recovered two guns at the scene. "This young man was definitely saved by his vest".
At a press conference later in the evening, the mayor said Nguyen is from the 75th Precinct, has more than two years of experience on the job and was in good spirits during the visit.
