Police have swarmed a Brooklyn obstruct after a NYPD officer was shot in the arm by a man with a long firearm who has blockaded himself in a flat building, the NYPD says.

Members of the NYPD and FDNY swarmed Chestnut Avenue, near Ridgewood Avenue, in Cypress Hills just before 4:55 p.m. after reports of shots fired, the spokeswoman said.

The officer, identified by the Daily News as Hart Nguyen, 30, was hit twice in his bullet proof vest and once in the arm. This is an example of the fact that our officers go into any situation and how it might turn on a moments notice.

The officer was taken to an area hospital and was in stable condition, the police said. When police finally gained access, they found the suspect dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said: "This young man was definitely saved by his vest, made all the difference here".

Police said the shooting began shortly after the woman's call about her son, whom she said was not violent and unarmed. The mayor and police commissioner showed off the vest during a news conference and credited it with saving the officer's life.

The disturbed man remained inside the rear bedroom after the shooting, police said.

The officer was brought to Jamaica Hospital with non-hazardous wounds. "Thank God our officer is going to come through OK in this case". Police say a man walked into Mike's Heavy Duty Towing and forced a female employee on the ground as he simulated a gun.
