NYPD officer injured by gunman could leave hospital today

NYPD officer shot in Brooklyn: Police

The officer, assigned to the NYPD's 75 Precinct, was responding to a call for an emotionally disturbed person on Ridgewood Ave in the Cypress Hills neighborhood.

The officer was hit in his impenetrable vest; the shot ricocheted off the vest and hit him in the arm, police said.

As Nguyen approached the room, the man inside fired, striking the officer once in the arm and twice in his bulletproof vest, police said. This is an example of the fact that our officers go into any situation and how it might turn on a moments notice.

The mayor said he and O'Neill were in a meeting when they heard the news and were briefed before they rushed to the hospital to meet the officer. His attacker killed himself after an armed standoff in Brooklyn, police said.

Taylor's attorneys believe the photograph is a "damning" proof of Mueller touching the singer-songwriter inappropriately. Swift has testified that "it was a definite grab". "I was always of the opinion she was too fan-friendly", Dent said.

"The caller reported that her 29-year-old son was not violent, reported to be unarmed and present with her in the home", O'Neill said.

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 vehicle and what he was doing with the medication, police said. "Thank God our officer is going to come through okay in this case", Mayor Bil lde Blasio told reporters Thursday.

The suspected shooter was holed up in the home for several hours as police converged on the area. "This young man was definitely saved by his vest".

The officer was brought to Jamaica Hospital with non-hazardous wounds.
