THE BRONX - (AP) - Two NYPD officers have been injured after they were grazed by a bullet fired by a fellow officer aiming at a pit bull in the Bronx.

Police say the officers suffered non life-threatening injuries, and were conscious and speaking at Jacobi Hospital. The incident began not far from 2471 Davidson Ave. in the Bronx.

Police say undercover officers in an unmarked police car chased a drug suspect to a basement apartment, where the suspect let out a pit bull that charged the officers. One officer fired one shot which splintered off a wall and hit the other two officers, one in the face and one in the leg.
