Officers pursuing an armed man in the Bronx on Wednesday night shot and wounded the subject in a gun battle. A woman and a 12-year-old girl were also wounded in the exchange, although it was not immediately clear whether the bystanders had been struck by rounds fired by the police or by the gunman, according to the New York Times.

Chief Terence Monahan said that police were called when the subject was running down the street “indiscriminately firing” a 25-caliber firearm which was recovered at the scene.

When police approached the subject, he produced the gun and began firing at officers, who then returned fire.

The man was struck once in the neck and once in the foot, and is expected to survive.

The woman was struck by a single round in the stomach. The girl was struck by bullet fragments in her leg. Both were transported to a nearby hospital and were listed in stable condition.
