(NEW YORK) — Two women, believed to be innocent bystanders, were hit by stray bullets fired by New York City police officers Saturday night in a densely populated area near Times Square.

Police say the women who were hit were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The officers were aiming for an “emotionally disturbed” man who was weaving in and out of traffic. New York City Police Chief Raymond Kelly said the man had threatened the officers.

The man was eventually taken in with the use of a taser.
