Two U.S. marshals and a city police officer were shot this afternoon in Greenwich Village while attempting to execute an out-of-state arrest warrant.
It happened just after 1 p.m. at West 4th Street and Sixth Avenue.
The suspect, who sources identify as Charles Mozdir, 32, was shot dead at the scene.
The officers were part of a special task force investigating Mozdir, an accused child molester from California.
The officers have been transported to Bellevue Hospital.
Sources say one of the marshals was shot in the leg and the NYPD detective was shot three times.
Both are said to be undergoing surgery.
