Officer Richard Gasparino, a member of the Stamford police department's Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit, was hit by a single gunshot from a .357 handgun as officers prepared to serve a warrant, officers said. The bullet pierced his neck and cheek.

Police officers at Stamford Hospital say Gasparino was expected to survive.
