The suspect fired shots at the officers, and the cops returned fire, hitting the suspect once in the back.


The shooter fled and wound up in a carjacked white Camaro that crashed on E. 188th St. and Park Ave. Police recovered a revolver, hidden in a hat, a block away at E. 189th St., sources said.


The shooter’s original getaway car, a Nissan Altima, wound up near Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, sources said. Cops were questioning a suspect there who fit the robber’s description and had a gunshot wound in his back.


Police were still seeking a second robber.


Monday’s shooting comes just a day after the funeral of Officer Wenjian Liu and a week after Officer Rafael Ramos was laid to rest. The two officers were assassinated Dec. 20 when crazed gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley ambushed them in their squad car outside the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Brinsley, who drove from Baltimore with murder on his demented mind, fatally shot himself in a subway station.
