Police said Thursday they're looking for two men in connection with a string of Brooklyn robberies between April and July.

NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill said at a news conference that two officers responded to a call about bout an emotionally disturbed 29-year-old man in an apartment in Brooklyn's Cypress Hill neighborhood.

Multiple shots are accepted to have been discharged, and another slug may have hit the officer in the chest or arm, as per police. Police said it appeared to a rifle of some sort had been used to shoot the officer.

The officer was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

A video feed from a television news helicopter showed armed police officers with their guns drawn taking cover, first behind an ambulance and then behind an armored vehicle outside a home. Hours later officers moved in and found the man dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
