Officer stabbed. suspect shot in chaotic Coney Island scuffle

Police have shot a man and an officer was allegedly stabbed in a chaotic brawl in Coney Island Thursday afternoon, according to police and in a video of the incident.

A NYPD spokesman said the suspected stabbing was moved into custody and the officer was taken to hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

The sources said the police officer is expected to survive as well as the suspect who was taken to hospital in custody.

A video posted on the Citizen app showed a strong law enforcement response.
The New York Police Department tweeted that people should avoid the area due to the investigation, but it did not immediately provide additional information on the case.

It’s not clear what triggered the standoff, which began around 1 p.m. on Surf Street, just off the famous boardwalk.

Police could not immediately determine whether the officer was stabbed before or after the shooting.
No other details of the suspect’s condition were available.

One witness said they heard multiple gunshots exploding outside their window, but requested anonymity for fear of police retaliation.

A video clip filmed by the witness shows two officers trying to arrest a person on the sidewalk.

When an officer called for support, more than a dozen policemen arrived at the scene, and surrounded the man as he lay on the ground.
At one point, one of the officers seemed to kick and stomp in his direction.

The video then shows an officer emerging from a struggle with what appears to be a scythe.
At first he crouched on the ground before collapsing, as a group of officers quickly surrounded him.

Ambulances arrived soon after, and a man who appears handcuffed is soon placed on a stretcher.
