The police officer who was shot in the head while sitting in a police vehicle in the Bronx early Wednesday has died according to law enforcement sources.

A suspect came up and blasted her through the window without warning, sources said.

“It was an attempted cop assassination,” one law enforcement source told The Post.

The gunman approached the officer at 12:30 a.m. as she sat inside a temporary headquarters vehicle at East 183rd Street and Morris Avenue in Fordham Heights, according to sources.

The officer — a 12-year-veteran who is with the Anti Crime unit of the 46th Precinct — was rushed to St. Barnabus Hospital, where she was undergoing surgery but could not be saved.

“This is absolutely an unprovoked attack,” said NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill.

The commissioner said the suspect fired one round, after which the shot officer’s partner called for backup.

Two other officers confronted the attacker about a block away, and shot him dead, police said.

A bystander wound up being shot in the stomach, and was in stable condition at St. Barnabas. A silver revolver was found near the dead suspect.

Cops rushing to the scene were warned by radio to keep their patrol vehicle windows closed while responding.
At least five evidence cups covered spent rounds coulalong Morris Avenue between 183rd and 184th streets.

Witness Jay Marzelli, 17, at first thought all the gunshot was fireworks.

“I was in this bodega right here on Crescent, just getting a sandwich and all of a sudden there was all this running and stuff going on and I look out probably 40,50, 60 cops screaming, “Call a paramedic, clear the block!’”

“It looked like there was a riot going on… two seconds later I hear gunshots: bam, bam…. and then the police officer was just laying there in front of the stationary precinct – right here on Crescent and [E 183.]

“I saw an officer laying there in the ground unconscious in another officers arms. Police officers screaming: ‘Get the f—ing paramedics.’”

“It was crazy — just insane. There were police officers everywhere.”

The shooting recalled the assassination of two uniformed officers as they sat in their marked police car on a street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn in December, 2014.

Dr. Darrin Porcher former NYPD Lt. and Army Veteran in his appearance on Fox pointed out that his social media pointed towards a violent act towards police. And That gun control would not have affected this in any way, because he was a convicted felony who was in possession of a firearm. The Second Amendment gives us the right to maintain firearms. And that these are the people we need to protect ourselves against. The Second Amendment affords us these protections to legal possess firearms.

Terrible! Condolences to the family, friends and fellow officers. I have two relatives (NYPD) that work in that area, one female. There were a few minutes of fearful searching for the name of the officer shot. I'm sure that experience was repeated by many family members and friends this morning as the news was released, with some relief when you realized the officer shot wasn't your loved one mixed with great sadness that another life was lost to senseless violence.

What a terrible shame. I'll be thinking about her kids losing their mother. Cops already had to worry about getting killed during a confrontation with a mounting number of increasingly vicious criminals. Now cops have to worry about being murdered at any moment. It's a sad state (in more ways than one).

We might never know what brought him to this act, but I'm sure that countless hours listening to how the police are murderous savages out to destroy the black community sure didn't help.  This is a weird world we live in now.  When I was a kid, I saw police and felt safe.  My house was robbed as a child, and I can still remember the police officer taking me to the side and telling me that the bad men who broke into my house would never come back.  I had such positive experiences with police my entire life.  The only thing that stops many in other communities from giving their children the same experiences are baseless fears.  


Such a terrible tragedy.
