A New York City police sergeant has been fatally shot and another has been wounded in an exchange of gunfire with a suspect in the Bronx.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the sergeant's death on Friday, saying the other officer was shot in the leg and is undergoing treatment.

Authorities said the gunman was killed. They said he had fired on officers who had stopped his car following a brief pursuit.

The suspect has been identified as 35-year-old Manuel Rosales. A woman called 911 after Rosales broke into her home, violating an order of protection.

A lawyer who previously represented Rosales said his client was not violent.
