NEW YORK — Police say two officers and two civilians were wounded and another person was killed in an exchange of gunfire in upper Manhattan.

NYPD spokesman Sgt. Carlos Nieves says the most seriously hurt officer was shot early Sunday in his protective vest covering his chest and was hospitalized in stable condition. The other officer was being treated for a graze wound to the hand.

The two other people have been hospitalized for gunshot wounds but their conditions weren’t available. It’s unclear whether any of the shooting victims are suspects.

Nieves says he is awaiting details on what led to the gunfire near 144th Street and Lenox Avenue and it’s not clear whether it came during a confrontation between the officers and the three.

He says a gun was found at the scene.

    You are so right NYPDALT abut wearing the vest. I sometimes worked with this one cop (not my partner thankfully) and when I insisted that he puts his vest on when in the car with me he did,but he had this old piece of crap that would probably not stop a bullet and he refused to get a proper vest. He made me nuts...to think about it, he was nuts. I am glad that this ended up this way, we already lost too many good guys this year.

    This is a lesson to those in uniform with no vest on.
