A police officer was shot three times and another was hit in his vest when two transit officers were attacked by a man on the Manhattan-bound N train at the Fort Hamilton stop in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, according to a number of news sources.

The officers stopped the man who was walking illegally between cars; he then started shooting at them. As subway riders screamed and scattered, the officers returned fire, killing the man.

Police believe the suspect purposely fired below the bulletproof vests of the officers, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported. The most seriously injured officer was shot in both thighs and in the scrotum.

Both officers have been taken to Lutheran Hospital.
