BRONX — A heroic off-duty NYPD officer was shot last night after breaking up a mugging in The Bronx - but still managed to chase down and kill one of the robbers, officials said.

Ivan Marcano, 27, applied pressure to the gunshot wound on his chest while returning fire, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

The bullet that struck Marcano grazed his left arm and entered his chest—just missing his heart—and fractured a rib. He was in stable condition last night at Bronx Lebanon Hospital, surrounded by family.
