Police Shoot Man Who Jumps in Patrol Car

November 03, 2014  | 

Police shot a 25-year-old man after he jumped in the backseat of their unmarked squad car and grabbed a sergeant's pistol in Brooklyn early Sunday, police sources said, reports the NY Daily News.

Authorities say the suspect hopped in the back of an unmarked patrol car stopped at a red light and started fighting with a sergeant and a police officer on Avenue D and Nostrand Ave. in East Flatbush around 12:45 a.m. Gunshots then erupted in the car.

It was not immediately clear who fired or why the suspect jumped into the squad car. While gripping the sergeant’s gun, the man jumped out of the car, law enforcement sources said.

The officers immediately followed him and opened fire.

The man, who was shot in the back and ankle, was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where police said he was in critical but stable condition.

No officers were hurt in the shooting.

No difference where he was shot. With tensions this high & that stupid act he deserved every bullet. Good job done NYPD Officers.
