U.S. Marshals Shot in Confrontation with Suspect in State Trooper Shooting

Two U.S. Marshals have been shot while assisting the locations and arrest of a suspect involved in the shooting of a Massachusetts state trooper. The suspect was shot and killed after a confrontation in the Bronx Friday morning.

Injuries to the marshals are not life-threatening, and both are in "OK condition," law enforcement officials have said. A New York Police Department detective, who was assisting the Marshals in a backup role, suffered a leg injury.

A gun was recovered near the 35-year-old suspect, who was wanted in connection with the wounding of a Massachusetts state trooper, one official said. The suspect allegedly shot the trooper in the hand on Nov. 20 on Cape Cod.

The marshals were executing an arrest warrant about 5:30 a.m. and exchanged gunfire with the suspect, an official said. One marshal sustained a gunshot wound to the groin and the other a wound to the leg, an official said.
