NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A man was fatally shot by the NYPD Tuesday night in Crown Heights.
The incident occurred at Rochester Avenue and Bergen Street between 9 p.m.and 9:30 p.m.
Officers responded to a report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found a man who had been shot.
They then observed an armed man hiding behind a row of trees near a playground, and approximately 10 officers then discharged their weapons, fatally striking him.
The man who was shot was transported to a hospital and he is in stable condition.
An illegal gun was recovered at the scene.
This was not related to the ongoing protests, police said.
From what police have seen on body cams so far and on bystanders' Facebook videos, officers spent about a minute telling man to drop the gun, as did bystanders.
The investigation is ongoing.
