NYPD auxiliary cop shot, robbed of motorcycle

An NYPD auxiliary officer was shot Saturday as a group of thieves stole his motorcycle in the Bronx, police said.
The 23-year-old NYPD volunteer had just dropped someone off on Independence Ave. near W. 239th St. in Kingsbridge around 4:30 a.m. when three men surrounded him and demanded his bike, cops said.
The trio then pounced on the victim, and swiped his Kawasaki motorcycle, a bag and his cellphone.
The victim, an auxiliary sergeant, was shot in the leg during the struggle.
The suspects sped off with his motorcycle. No arrests have been made.
EMS rushed the victim to Saint Barnabas Hospital, where he was expected to survive.
The NYPD auxiliary unit is the largest volunteer police force in the nation, with more than 4,000 members. The auxiliaries help bolster police presence at parades, street fairs and other city events, but are not allowed to take enforcement action.
