A New York state trooper was struck by a car and fired at least one bullet on the ramp to the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge in the Bronx Sunday afternoon, police and cop sources said.

The gunfire rang out at 1:57 p.m. at the bridge entrance, but it was unclear who the intended target was, an NYPD spokeswoman said. Police sources said the officer was struck by a car.

The spokeswoman referred further questions about the shooting to the state police, but they weren’t answering a press line Sunday afternoon.
