Suspects in Murder of NYPD Officer Indicted

Guy Rivera, the 34-year-old suspected of fatally shooting Officer Jonathan Diller last week during a traffic stop, was indicted for first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder.

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz has announced that Guy Rivera and Lindy Jones have been indicted on charges connected to the shooting death of NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller in Far Rockway last week.

"The killing of a New York City police officer strikes at the heart of this city and rattles any sense of security in a civilized society. The grand jury has returned several felony charges against these defendants in the death of Detective Jonathan Diller, a dedicated officer, father, husband, and son who lost his life while carrying out his duty to serve and protect the community," Katz said.

Rivera, the 34-year-old suspected of fatally shooting Diller during a traffic stop, was indicted for first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder for attempting to fire his weapon at an NYPD sergeant at the scene, Fox reports.

Both defendants were indicted on charges of criminal possession of a weapon for a second weapon found in the car.

Jones was indicted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree.
