3 NYPD Cops Shot In the Bronx, Brooklyn
January 04, 2013
Three NYPD cops were shot in separate incidents an hour apart in the Bronx and Brooklyn Thursday night—one that left a gunman dead on a subway platform and an innocent straphanger wounded.
The three cops, all expected to make a full recovery, were the first officers shot in the new year, wounded three days after the NYPD closed a bloody 2012 in which a dozen cops were shot.
In one of the shootings, Officer Juan Pichardo wrested a gun away from an armed robber at a friend's Bronx car lot. Officer Pichardo, who was off-duty and unarmed at the time, broke free of zip ties and had a gun pointed in his face, reports the New York Daily News.
Officers Michael Levay and Lukasz Kozicki were wounded during a shootout aboard an N train in Brooklyn.
