Four members of an Orthodox Jewish volunteer patrol in Brooklyn are recovering after they were shot last night by a man in a car. The patrol members had confronted the driver, saying he had been acting suspiciously.

Police say the suspect was also wounded by a bullet he fired himself. He was seized by the volunteers, who were with the Shomrim Patrol, a community group that works with police in Brooklyn's Jewish neighborhoods.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says the unnamed suspect has an "extensive" criminal record. Members of the Shomrim Patrol say the suspsect was spotted in the neighborhood earlier this week leering at a group of young girls.
