WILLIAMSBRIDGE - An officer from The Bronx is recovering today after being shot in the leg last night in Williamsbridge.

Officer Juan Pichardo was working off-duty yesterday at his family's car dealership when two men feigned interest in a car for sale.

One of the men was armed, and told the 34-year-old Pichardo and another person to get on the ground. The suspect tied up Pichardo and another victim, and attempted to rob the dealership.

An employee at the store said that Pichardo quickly untied himself, disarmed the robber and waited until help arrived.

Pichardo is currently recovering at Jacobi Medical Center.
