Two state troopers were shot Wednesday morning in this Catskill Mountains community as police closed in on a suspect in the shooting of another trooper hours earlier, authorities said.
The troopers were flown by helicopter to a hospital, said Maureen Tuffey, a spokeswoman for the state police in Albany. She did not describe the extent of their injuries.
The hunt for the suspect started after Trooper Matthew Gombosi was shot in the torso during a traffic stop in the Margaretville area on Tuesday. Police said his body armor saved him from serious injury.
