Cop Shot During Struggle Makes Gun Arrest Nearby

NEW YORK (AP) -

A New York City police officer who survived a gunshot wound to the head arrested a man with a gun Tuesday just yards from where he was originally shot.

Sgt. Kevin Brennan said Tuesday he had just finished walking prosecutors through the scene where he was shot last January during a struggle with an armed suspect in a Brooklyn public housing complex when his old partner spotted two men wanted for armed robbery.

Brennan says he and his former partner approached the men and noticed one of them was hiding something and shielding his body against a fence.

Brennan searched the man and found a handgun in his waistband. The suspects were arrested on robbery and weapons charges.
