Hate seeing stories like this.

According to Go Heroes, a firefighter was shot when a man barricaded in a Staten Island home's basement opened fire at responding police and firefighters.

Police were at the house to serve a warrant when they saw smoke coming out of the basement and call the Fire department. Once firefighters arrived and put out the fire, a man began shooting from the windows.

One firefighter was being taken to the hospital with an apparent gunshot wound to his leg.

We will keep you updated as the story unfolds. In the meantime keep this firefighter and those on the scene in your prayers.
