Reports are that at about 3:30 PM, two police officers were carrying out traffic duties at the intersection of Maxfield and Balmoral Avenue, when they were approached by a man.

The man reportedly disarmed one of the cops, then opened fire in the direction of the other, hitting him in his leg and hands.
