Police conducting a traffic stop in the Bronx opened fire when the vehicle fled, briefly dragging an officer, police and sources said.
Nobody appeared to be struck by gunfire, police said, in the shooting at about 6:30 p.m. near East 167th Street and Walton Avenue.
At least one officer opened fire during the car stop gone bad.
Sources said multiple shots were fired and police placed six evidence markers in the intersection.
An officer was taken to an area hospital with a hand laceration.
The suspect fled in a grey Dodge Charger, which was still being sought late Tuesday.
