Prosecutors immediately went to the scene where the FBI, along with the Greenburgh Police Task Force, which included officers from several other police departments, attempted to execute several out-of-state warrants.

"What took place at the scene in Ardsley is the subject of our investigation," the Westchester DA's Office said in a statement. "Our office will continue to consult with the New York Attorney General’s office as the investigation continues."

The two officers injured were both sergeants, one from Greenburgh PD and one from Dobbs Ferry PD. They were treated and released from the hospital.
