NEW YORK — Two New York City police officers responding to a robbery were shot Monday night in the Bronx.

Authorities said the officers were taken to the hospital with injuries that were thought to be non-life threatening. It happened shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday on East 184th Street in the Tremont section of the borough.

The shooting comes just more than two weeks after two officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were gunned down in their patrol car in Brooklyn by a man who vowed online to kill “pigs.” The man later committed suicide.

Preliminary investigations into Monday’s shooting were continuing.
