NY1 | 24 Hour Local News | Top Stories | Intruder Shot In Off-Duty Policeman's House
An intruder who broke into an off-duty police officer's Brooklyn home Friday was shot in the leg.
Police say the would-be thief broke into the policeman’s Greenpoint home Friday afternoon while the officer was napping. Shots were fired inside the home, but police are investigating who pulled the trigger.
Authorities say the intruder was taken to Woodhull Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.
"I just heard the yelling and a gunshot so I stayed in my apartment,” said neighbor Nadia Pabste. “I knew a policeman lived downstairs, so I just waited in my apartment, looked out the window until I saw all the cops outside."
Police say the officer was not injured, but was taken to Bellevue Hospital for trauma.
