New York City police officer shot inside precinct: reports

Fox News

gunman opened fire inside a New York City police precinct Sunday morning, striking a police officer in the arm just hours after another police officer was shot and injured in his patrol car in what officials called an attempted assassination.

The second officer was shot just before 8 a.m. inside the headquarters of the 41st Precinct in the Bronx and was currently in stable condition at Lincoln Hospital, NYPD spokesperson Hubert Reyes said. A suspect was in custody.

Reyes said it is unclear if Sunday’s shooting is related to Saturday evening’s ambush on a patrol van in the same area.

A man approached the uniformed officers’ van just before 8:30 p.m. Saturday and asked for direction when he brandished a gun “without provocation,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said. Neither officer returned fire.

The officer at the wheel of the van was grazed in the chin and neck, but he avoided serious injury. The officer was expected to released from the hospital Sunday.

No arrests were immediately made as police launched a manhunt for the gunman following the shooting.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted shortly after the shooting that he was “horrified” by the apparent back-to-back attacks on officers.

“Horrified by the multiple attacks on @NYPD officers in the Bronx,” Cuomo wrote. “NY’s law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. These attacks are heinous. Those responsible will be brought to justice & held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”
