A man was wounded during an exchange of gunfire with New York City police officers in the Bronx, police said Sunday.

The shots were fired after police chased a car they determined was stolen into the borough at around midnight Saturday.

Two suspects got out of the car a few blocks from Yankee Stadium. One of them was apprehended and the other exchanged shots with officers as he fled, NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell said at a briefing early Sunday.
