Two plainclothes NYPD police officers shot a man after he fired at them in Brooklyn, authorities told PIX11 News.

The two officers approached the 20-year-old near Grafton and Livonia St. in Brownsville suspecting he had a gun, police said. The teen then opened fire, and cops fired back, police said.

The teen was taken to Brookdale Hospital in serious condition, but he is suspected to survive.

The police-involved shooting comes just two weeks after cops gunned down what they said was an armed teenager in Flatbush. That shooting has led to a widespread outcry and unrest and protests on neighborhood streets.

A gun was recovered at the scene, according to police.  It is unclear how many shots were fired.
