The shooting occurred at approximately 6 p.m. ET on W. 135th Street near Malcolm X Boulevard. The New York Police Department (NYPD) simply called the shooting a "police incident" and urged pedestrians and motorists to seek an alternate route.

The officers were responding to a domestic dispute involving a mother and son, according to a report from WLNY-TV. Shots reportedly broke out as soon as the officers arrived on the scene.

The two officers were reportedly taken to Harlem Hospital, where they both later succumbed to their injuries despite doctor's efforts, according to reports. One of them was reportedly shot in the face, according to local news outlets.

While an NYPD spokesperson would only confirm the shooting, Fox News was the first to report that both officers had in fact died.

Neither of the officers' identities has been revealed at this time in order to protect their family's privacy.
