VIDEO: Retired NYPD Lt. Stops Pharmacy Robber

A retired NYPD lieutenant fatally shot a Bloods gang member who attempted to rob a Harlem pharmacy with two accomplices, who are still being sought by police.

The retired cop was filling up his car at a BP gas station in East Harlem across the street from the RX Center, when the robbery occurred at 11:05 a.m. on April 12.

Surveillance video obtained by the New York Post shows the 23-year-old suspect racing out of the pharmacy and running across the street, where he's met by the retired officer.

The suspect was wanted in two earlier shootings in East Harlem and Georgia, reports the New York Daily News.

Great job LT. Thank You Pres. Bush for signing H.R. 218 into law, it works!! It was worth the push that all of us put on years ago to get it passed. Thank You L.E.A.A.

That's what concealed carry is all about. NY Citizens need to start demanding and electing politicians that will restore their right to carry concealed and defend themselves.

That"s why I moved to Arizona from New Jersey so as I can protect myself 24/7.

I too am retired from a sheriff office in Oklahoma. I too have the HB 218 which carries more power than the badge I use to carry. I hear all the time about the retired officers who are still in the fight. Stay safe my brothers and sisters. Good job Lt.
