Gunman ambushes New York police officers twice in 12 hours

A gunman who ambushed police officers in the Bronx twice in 12 hours has been arrested.

The man, who has not been named, was captured after he walked into a police station and started shooting shortly before 8am on Sunday.

He wounded one officer and narrowly missed a number of others before he ran out of bullets, lay down and gave up his gun.

That attack came just hours after the same man approached a police van in the same part of the Bronx and fired at two officers inside.

Despite multiple shots fired in both incidents, nobody was killed, and all are expected to recover, police said.
