An off-duty police lieutenant shot and injured a man while attempting to break up an early-morning dispute yesterday in Queens.

Police said the lieutenant was driving in Jackson Heights shortly before 5 a.m. when he saw two men assaulting another man and stopped to intervene. As the lieutenant chased the two suspects, police said, one of them reached for the lieutenant's gun. In the ensuing struggle for the weapon, the gun went off and struck the suspect once, police said.
