NEW YORK — An NYPD cop executing a warrant on Staten Island was shot through a door Thursday morning, making him the second officer shot in the city this week.

Both the officer and the suspect’s injuries are not considered life threatening.

The officer shot was part of a narcotics team executing a search warrant at a residence on Rockne St. near Elwood Ave. about 6 a.m. When cops went to the door, the gunman inside fired through the door, hitting the officer in the leg.

The officer, conscious and alert, was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North. The suspect was also shot and taken to Richmond University Medical Center.

The officer is the second NYPD cop shot this week. On Tuesday night, a cop was grazed in the leg scuffling with a teen gunman in the Bronx. The teen fired, striking himself in the groin and the Officer Kaseem Pennant in the leg. The teen was charged and Pennant was treated at a hospital and released.
