  • NYPD officer shot in Brooklyn: Police

The officer did not return fire, O'Neill says. Medics took him to the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and he was said to be in a stable condition, according to the New York Times. His name was not released.

The officer, who is 30 years old and remains unidentified, sustained an injury to his right arm, and his bulletproof vest deflected two shots on his chest, the commissioner said, showing the vest to the reporters. The suspect's name was withheld pending notification of his family. Two other shots hit his bulletproof vest. The call was from a woman who said her 29-year-old mentally deranged son was in their residence in Brooklyn with her. Police say a man walked into Mike's Heavy Duty Towing and forced a female employee on the ground as he simulated a gun.
