NEW YORK (AP) — A suspect in the shooting of state trooper in Massachusetts was killed during a shootout with U.S. marshals in the Bronx early Friday that left two officers wounded.

The two marshals suffered non-life threatening injuries in the 5:30 a.m. confrontation.

Calls were made the U.S. Marshals Service seeking comment.

The New York Police Department confirmed the shooting happened about 5:30 a.m. Friday.

The police department’s public information office referred a request for additional information by The Associated Press to the U.S. Marshals Service.
