VIDEO: NYPD Officer Bitten, Suspect Shot During Traffic Stop Attempt

A man with a gun was shot in the leg by police and the suspect bit an NYPD officer during an attempted traffic stop in Queens Village late Wednesday, reports WABC.

Authorities say the suspect, 34-year-old Ramell Lockwood, had run several red lights. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle on Hollis Avenue around 11 p.m., but the driver refused when the officer told him to place the vehicle in park.

A sergeant got in on the passenger side of the vehicle to put the car in park, and Lockwood sped off, dragging the sergeant, police said. The vehicle headed east on Hollis, but stopped at 217th when police cut the car off, pushing it into a fence at a public school.

At that point, police said the suspect pointed his weapon at the sergeant and said, "I am ready to die." The sergeant fired once, striking Lockwood in the right leg. He was then taken into custody.

One officer was bitten on his left arm during the struggle, and a loaded .40-caliber Glock 26 semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the suspect. Five officers were taken to the hospital.

This story could have had a completely different and tragic ending for these officers. I hope that the officers had only minor injures. Stay safe blues.
