The marshals are in “OK condition,” with injuries not considered life threatening, the officials said. A detective with the New York Police Department, which was assisting the US marshals in a backup role, suffered a leg injury.
A gun was recovered near the 35-year-old suspect, who was wanted in connection with the wounding of a Massachusetts state trooper, one official said.
The marshals were executing an arrest warrant about 5:30 a.m. and exchanged gunfire with the suspect, an official said.
The gunfire erupted on Ely Avenue in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.
One marshal sustained a gunshot wound to the groin and the other a wound to the leg, an official said.
The marshals and the NYPD officer were taken to Jacobi Hospital, authorities said.
