NYPD Officer Shot, Bullet Proof Vest Saved His Life

NYPD Officer Shot, Bullet Proof Vest Saved His Life

Police have swarmed a Brooklyn obstruct after a NYPD officer was shot in the arm by a man with a long firearm who has blockaded himself in a flat building, the NYPD says.

After a barricade situation in which authorities tried to reach the gunman to talk to him, emergency service officers burst into the bedroom and found the suspect had shot himself, police said.

When reached by Metro, the NYPD said that the officer had been taken a nearby hospital and there is no further information on her condition.

They discovered the man dead from what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds, Police Commissioner James O'Neill said in a press conference Thursday night. "Immediately after the shooting, the 29-year-old subject remained in the rear bedroom".

Hours after surviving four shots fired off by a crazed gunman, an NYPD cop was all smiles as he recuperated from a Queens hospital bed, a law enforcement source said Friday.




According to officials the man's mother made a 911 call, telling police her son was nonviolent and unarmed.

"He had a great attitude".

Nguyen and his partner split up after being told by the mother that Sookdeo may try to flee through a back door of the home, police officials said. He tweeted about the standoff from Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. "Thank God our officer is going to come through OK in this case".

"Small-caliber round, so you're not going to be able to see where the impact was, but I did see the blunt force injury trauma on the officer's chest", O'Neill said.
