Here we go again.
In another bloody attack on New York’s Finest, two cops were shot by robbers in The Bronx Monday night — and a massive manhunt was underway for at least one suspect early Tuesday.
Officers Andrew Dossi and Aliro Pellarano — who had just finished their shift but came back on to respond to the robbery — were among a group of officers who encountered the gunmen at a Chinese restaurant on Tiebout Avenue at about 10:30 p.m., according to law enforcement sources.
Two suspects were inside the restaurant when the plainclothes cops confronted them. One suspect opened fire as he walked out of the eatery and the other fired shots through the window, leaving Dossi and Pellarano wounded.
The suspects then fled the scene on foot and an exchanged gunfire wit other cops at 184th Street and Tiebout Avenue.
Witnesses said they heard a series of gunshots near the location.
“I heard six shots,” Stephen Melowski, 36. “I looked out and I saw the shot cops getting inside a car. Somebody was saying ‘Oh my God, oh my God!’ ”
Pellarano was struck in the arm and grazed in the chest and Dossi was shot in stomach and arm.
The suspects then carjacked a white Camaro and drove a short distance before crashing at 188th Street and Park Avenue. They then got out and started running.
A weapon was recovered at 189th Street and Park , a source said.
Both officers, from the 46th precinct, were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital. Dossi was in surgery Tuesday morning. The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
“Thanks God these officers are doing well,” Mayor de Blasio said from the hospital Tuesday morning. “These officers did something that was extraordinarily brave. They did it as part of their commitment. These officers had just come off their shift and upon hearing this call went back out in search of these criminals. The work they do is so profoundly important in this instance where they went above and beyond the call to protect their fellow New Yorkers.”
A shame how these criminals keep interrupting de Blasio’s plans for a socialist utopia.
Here’s a look at one of the suspects. May his future involve much misery and pain:
