A shooter was shot after firing two rounds of NYPD police and catching a female officer during a shooting on Staten Island.

Officers were called to a house on Prince Street, Staten Island around 8:45 on Tuesday morning after receiving reports of domestic violence.

NYPD commissioner James O & Neill said the suspect, identified by the New York Post like Gregory Edwards, 39, & # 39; immediately became combative & # 39; when the police arrived at the house.

Four responding officers used a Taser for the suspect, but he still resisted the arrest and shot two guns at the police.

The officers shot back and killed the suspect. At the gunfire, a female agent who had been working since 2016 got caught in the wrist.

& # 39; It is the type of call that NYPD police respond to thousands of times a year, but today we are reminded again that no call is routine. It was a vivid example of the dangers that NYPD police officers face every day to keep our city safe, & said # 39;
