Life in NYC

NYPD cop shot after responding to call in the Bronx, 16-year-old busted

The cop – identified by police sources as Officer Paul Lee, a member of the 48th Precinct’s public safety team – was sitting in an unmarked police vehicle when he and his team spotted two men at the southwest corner of East 183rd Street and Prospect Avenue and pulled up to them, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig told reporters.

The duo started to run away — but then one of them turned and opened fire at the cops, police sources said.

“As [the officers] pull up, at least one male fires at least six times, striking the windshield and our officer who was seated in the passenger seat,” Essig said during a morning press conference.

Lee was shot in the left arm, “narrowly missing vital structures,” Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell told reporters.
