NYPD officers from LI survive shooting

NYPD officer Thomas Richards escaped serious injury Feb. 27 -- in what Police Commissioner Ray Kelly called "another miracle" -- when the officer's spare ammunition magazine on his gun belt deflected a bullet fired at him by a suspect on Manhattan's Lower East Side, officials said. His partner, Officer Thomas Dunne, was also shot at, but not wounded.
