A gunman was wounded in a police-involved shooting in Brooklyn, the second such incident in as many days.

Police were called to 456 Glenn Moore St. in East New York at about 5:30 p.m. for a report of a man with a gun inside the home, according to authorities. When officers arrived and surrounded the house, they saw the suspect peering out the window. An officer stationed at the back saw the suspect walking out the back door armed with a gun, police said, and ordered him to drop the gun.

When the suspect ignored him, the officer shot at him, striking him in the torso. 

The suspect, a 31-year-old with a long rap sheet, according to police, was taken to Brookdale Hospital in serious but stable condition. 

The officer was taken to North Shore Hospital for observation but otherwise no officers were hurt. 

Investigation is ongoing.
