Cops are looking for a trio that shot a man after they robbed a Long Island City supermarket.
According to law enforcement sources, three unknown men entered the Bonoful Supermarket, located 29-11 36th Ave., just before 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 17.
Police said that one of the men had a police shield and told the store employees, in sum and circumstance, that the store was doing something illegal and proceeded to fine them.
The suspects took an undetermined amount of cash from the register. On their way out of the store, the bandits got into a scuffle with a 30-year-old man who was inside the store, and shot him in the leg.
Officers from the 114th Precinct responded to the location after a 911 call came in. The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.
Cops described the thieves as light-skinned men, one of whom was last seen wearing a dark-colored sweatsuit, who fled the scene in a burgundy van.
The 114th Precinct tweeted out the following image of one of the suspects, who reportedly tried to impersonate an officer the next day:
