Two unarmed auxiliary police officers were fatally shot last night during a chase with a gunman on a busy stretch of bars and restaurants in the heart of Greenwich Village, the authorities said.
The gunman was shot and killed about 9:30 p.m. by regular police officers who quickly responded to the scene, the authorities said.
The attack began after the gunman entered a pizzeria on Macdougal and West Houston Streets and shot a bartender who worked there, the authorities said. The two auxiliary officers ? volunteers who dress in uniforms virtually indistinguishable from regular police officers ? followed the gunman toward Sullivan Street, where he suddenly turned and shot them, the authorities said.
The identities of the two slain officers and the gunman were unavailable early this morning. The bartender, whose name was also unavailable, was killed as well, the authorities said.
It was the second time in two nights that city officers were attacked in the line of duty. On Tuesday night, one police officer was shot in a Harlem restaurant only 90 minutes before another was stabbed in the head at a Brooklyn subway station. Both survived.
