The off-duty corrections officer saw a man open fire on a vehicle during what was believed to be a party weekend at Jamaica Avenue and 214th Place in Queens Village, just after 8 p.m. Sunday.
The officer fired and hit the gunman three times. A second gunman then fired at the off-duty corrections officer, hitting him once in the left leg.
Mayor Eric Adams said the gunmen should never have been out on the street.
The original shooter was taken to Jamaica Medical Center and the off-duty prosecutor was taken to North Shore University Hospital Manhasset. Injuries are also not believed to be life-threatening.
A third man was reportedly shot during a shootout.
The police are looking for clues on the spot.
