Two NYPD police officers were shot Friday afternoon responding to a home invasion in the Bronx. Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo, 41, was struck in the head and chest later died. The police gave chase four blocks to 1575 Noble Ave., at the corner of Mansion Street, where they traded gun fire.

The other sergeant was shot in the leg. The gunman was killed in the exchange. Both officers were assigned to the 43rd Precinct.
In a statement late Friday after, Cuomo said,
“Every day, the brave men and women of law enforcement selflessly serve our communities to keep the rest of us safe. Today, a sergeant in the New York City Police Department has made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, and another officer is undergoing treatment.
“My deepest sympathies are with the families of the officers involved in today’s tragedy in the Bronx, and with Commissioner O’Neill and the NYPD as they cope with the loss of one of their own.”
