UPDATE: 2 US Marshals and 1 NYPD Officer Shot in West Village

Two US Marshals and one NYPD detective were shot in the West Village Monday afternoon.

The officials were all members of the fugitive task force and were serving a warrant near West 4th and Jones Street.

The warrant was for the now-deceased suspect, Charles Mozdir, who was wanted for child molestation in Coronado, California. Mozdir has been wanted since June 2012 after he never showed up to a court appearance for sexually assaulting a boy he was babysitting.

All officers are expected to live with non life-threatening injuries. One was shot in the back and another was shot in the stomach, with all three being treated at Bellevue Hospital.

The suspect, who was an alleged sex-offender wanted in the state of California, was shot on the scene and pronounced dead.
