New York Police Officer Shoots Man in Struggle Caught on Camera
Officer shoots man during Bronx arrest
A man was seriously injured when he was shot twice by a police officer in the Bronx on Sunday night, officials confirmed.
The suspect, who is believed to be in his 50s, was shot in the chest and hip after he was wrestled to the ground by NYPD officers from the 44th Precinct at West 166th Street and Summit Avenue around 7 p.m.
The man who was shot had his arm in a car and told police it was his vehicle. But NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said the keys the man had were not for the white BMW and that the car’s right rear window had been broken.
A struggle ensued when the officers tried to arrest the man. One of the officers said he felt a gun pressed to his chest. The officer shot twice, hitting the man in the torso and hip.
The suspect, who police say was armed with a semiautomatic 9mm gun, was rushed to NYC Health Hospital in serious condition.
He was still in surgery several hours after the shooting.
The suspect is in surgery and is in stable condition.
