A $10,000 cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who shot an off-duty NYPD officer in a McDonald's drive-thru Monday afternoon in Brooklyn.

Sources said the officer was in a car at McDonald's near Ashford Street and Linden Boulevard in East New York when two men began shooting at each other outside her vehicle.

The officer was hit twice in the arm by crossfire. After she was shot, she drove less than a mile away to her mother's Ashford Street apartment in her bullet-riddled car. An ambulance picked her up and took her to Kings County Hospital.

Investigators scoured the streets looking for evidence in the area of Linden Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue. Police said they were also reviewing surveillance video of businesses in the area.

So far, they have no suspects.

NYPD would not identify the officer, but neighbors said she was a "wonderful" mother in her mid-30s.

Citizen group COP SHOT (Citizens Outraged at Police Being Shot) announced the $10,000 reward Monday night, asking anyone with information on the shooting to call 800-COP-SHOT. All information is kept confidential.

The drive-through shooting is the City's latest high profile example of violence outside a MacDonald's restaurant. Just last week, police released video of a suspect opening fire outside a Flatbush MacDonald's. The 18-year-old victim was also recovering at Kings County Hospital.
