Police ambush suspect arraigned on attempted murder charges

Gunman at large after wounding NYPD officer in ‘assassination attempt’

"I want New Yorkers to be clear, this was an attempt to assassinate police officers", de Blasio said at a news conference, according to CBS New York.

This Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020, image taken from video provided by the New York Police Department shows a man, who the NYPD is seeking the public's assistance in identifying in connection to a police involved shooting, in New York.

Shea did not release the suspect's name, but said he has a long history of violence, including a conviction for a 2002 incident where he shot someone in the Bronx, carjacked a woman, crashed her vehicle and then engaged in a gunfight with police, Shea said.

Sunday's shooting took place in the 41st precinct in the Bronx and the suspect is in custody, the NYPD said.

New York City police officers work the scene of a police involved shooting outside the 41st precinct in New York on February 9, 2020.

The officer was wounded and is expected to survive, CNN affiliate NY1 reported. "At least one, possibly two, shots" struck the driver in the chin and the neck and narrowly missed a vital artery.

Under the watching eyes of the police officers who packed a Bronx courtroom, a handcuffed Robert Williams, 45, made his first appearance following his Sunday arrest, wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants, one eye swollen shut and a bandage on his ear.

The officer injured in the first shooting, Paul Stroffolino, was released from the hospital Sunday to applause from a sizable contingent of fellow officers.

Shea said this weekend's attacks reminded him of the 2014 murders of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu as they sat in their patrol vehicle. The unidentified officer is being treated at Lincoln Medical Center.

The commissioner also lashed out at criminal justice reform activists who have held demonstrations against excessive force by police in recent months, including a large protest in Grand Central Terminal.

New York NBC 4 reports that a NYPD lieutenant was shot hours after an ambush attack on other officers.

Lynch also called on de Blasio and Mayor Andrew Cuomo to recognize how "dangerous the streets are" in New York City and that they have to "start working with us".

"It's not too late to stand up on that soapbox and say, 'My words against police officers did damage".

Mayor Bill de Blasio also quickly condemned violence against NY police following the first attack Saturday night.

In 2017, a gunman killed Officer Miosotis Familia in the Bronx as she sat in her mobile command vehicle. "It's an attack on a democratic society, a decent society", de Blasio said Sunday morning. "I think if I said ... to the police officers, the firefighters, the Sanitation workers 'hey, if you were going to save on your property tax bill it could lead to a much smaller workforce, how would you feel?' I think people would say 'no wait a minute, we don't want to see a reduction'".
