nypd copshot-0109A New York City police officer shot in the leg while responding to a melee outside a party in the South Bronx over the weekend was wounded by a fellow officer, officials said on Monday.

The determination that the injury suffered by the officer, Sherrod Stuart, was a case of so-called friendly fire came on Sunday after doctors were able to remove a bullet from the officer’s left leg, they said.

Officer Stuart, who was in plainclothes, was hit just above his ankle around 2 a.m. on Saturday as he and other officers moved in to break up a fight outside an illegal “jump-up” party in a rented hall in the Mott Haven neighborhood. The fight involved dozens of people, some wielding bats, knives and guns, the police said.

Investigators still believe Christopher Rice, 19, a Bronx man with a long criminal history, including arrests for assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest, opened fire in the street outside the hall, at 2505 Third Avenue, near 137th Street.
