A New York Police Department (NYPD) officer late Thursday was shot and wounded during a standoff with a suspect near a Brooklyn home, local officials said.

When officers arrived and approached the front of the building, the suspect opened gunfire and struck an officer several times, the commissioner said. According to the news network, the injured officer was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, but a spokesperson from NYPD could not confirm additional details.

But when police made entry into the home they found the suspect dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, O'Neill said, adding that a revolver, semi-automatic handgun and ammo were found at his side. Mayor de Blasio and other officials visited with him at the hospital Thursday. He is armed with a long rifle, the law enforcement source said.

O'Neill said the gunman's mother first called 911.
