NYPD officer shot in Brooklyn; suspect barricaded in building with rifle

NYPD officer shot in Brooklyn: Police

A man who shot an NYPD officer in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon is dead from an apparent suicide, officials say.

When the officer approached the back of the home with EMS, police said the suspect fired three times, striking him in the arm once and twice in the bullet proof vest.

NBC4 reported that the bullet that struck the officer's arm richocheted off her bulletproof vest and that the unidentified shoot is barricaded in a nearby apartment building with a rifle. This is an example of the fact that our officers go into any situation and how it might turn on a moments notice.

The disturbed man died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Sources say the 911 call was made by Sookdeo's mother, who had told police that her son was acting erratically, but that he was not armed or violent.

At a press conference later in the evening, the mayor said Nguyen is from the 75th Precinct, has more than two years of experience on the job and was in good spirits during the visit.

In addition to the weapons, the shooter had a good amount of pills and had recently gotten a new BMW, which has raised questions about how he funded the auto and what he was doing with the medication, police said.

Police have not yet identified the suspect.

"He had a great attitude".

As for the officer, he was rushed to Jamaica Hospital and it already on the mend.

"What could have been just another day, just another call turned into something much worse", the mayor said.
