An on-duty officer assigned to the transit division was shot in the leg by a suspect while on the platform of the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop in Dyker Heights served by the N line, according to law enforcement officials. A second officer was grazed during the shooting. Both cops were in plain clothes.
According to sources, the officers had stopped the suspect on a train and exited with him at the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop after he was caught walking between subway cars.
At some point, the suspect pulled out a gun and opened fire on the officers, the sources said.
The Brooklyn-bound N train is currently bypassing the station. The northbound train is running the line between Stillwell Avenue and 36th Street.
