Two NYPD officers were shot early Saturday morning after confronting a man with a gun in Brooklyn.  

The officers, working a plainclothes detail at the time, spotted the suspect, 34-year old Jamaal Funes, with a gun in his car. When the officers attempted to pull Funes over he fled. 

After a brief chase, the officers' patrol vehicle was rammed head on by Funes. An exchange of gunfire then ensued.  

Officer Andrew Yurkin was shot at point blank range directly in his vest and Officer William Reddin was struck in the hip. 

Officer Yurkin was treated for blunt force trauma and released from the hospital. Officer Reddin underwent surgery and is listed in stable condition. 

Funes was shot multiple times in the exchange of gunfire and transported to a local hospital for treatment. He is listed in critical condition.
