DRAMATIC FOOTAGE: NYPD Officer Wounded, Suspect Killed in Manhattan Shootout

1

The NYPD says an officer was wounded in a broad daylight gunbattle in upper Manhattan that left one suspect dead.

It happened at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Washington Heights as officers were responding to a 911 call of shots fired. The 5 ½-year veteran is expected to survive.

Police say the officer had spotted a suspect with a handgun run into a parking lot. As the officer pursues him on foot, police say the suspect takes cover behind a car and fires three rounds.

The officer fires back once before being struck in the armpit.

At the same time, police say the officer’s partner drives an unmarked patrol car into the parking lot and engages fire with the suspect, fatally striking him once in the chest.

The handgun was recovered.

  1. The intersection is still closed & swarming with police officers this morning. Fortunately, despite all the activity, I was able to get some shut eye overnite, before Seder nite. But what a colossal sum of taxpayers’ money, these police investigations cost. Shooter is dead, and all the investigations aren’t bringing shooter back to life, so accomplish nothing.
