New York, N.Y. -- An off-duty police officer was injured in a shootout Saturday after two masked men who had just robbed a bank tried to commandeer his car, triggering a spirited foot chase on a crowded Queens street, the police said.
The police yesterday arrested Joseph Pennington, 43, the wounded man, and Dion Mines, 35. They were expected to be charged with assault, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, the police said.
