(AP Photo/Seth Wenig) (Newser) – A gunman is dead after a firefight inside a Greenwich Village smoke shop today, the New York Post reports. Two US Marshals and an NYPD detective, all of whom were working as part of a fugitive task force, were shot as they tried to apprehend a fugitive behind the counter at Smoking Culture around 1pm. "It appears the injuries to the officers are not life-threatening, but we are waiting for more information," Mayor Bill de Blasio says, according to the Wall Street Journal. WPIX 11 says the now-dead fugitive was a sex-assault suspect.
