Brooklyn police officer shot dead while trying to handcuff suspect after responding to domestic dispute

A 38-year-old Brooklyn police officer was shot and wounded Wednesday morning while responding to a domestic dispute in Bedford-Stuyvesant, police said.

Seven-year NYPD veteran Orlando Adorino chased the suspect to 181 Monroe Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 9 a.m. and handcuffed him when the man freed his hand, pulled a gun from his waistband, and opened fire Police sources The with mail.

Adorino was shot in the leg and taken to Kings County Hospital, where he was in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities said Mayor Eric Adams, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell and department head Jeffrey Maddrey visited the hospital later Wednesday morning.

“Let’s be clear, because of the actions of Officer Adorino and his partner, we’ve got a dangerous person off our streets and an illegal weapon off our streets,” Adams said at a news conference.

Sources said the incident happened after police officers arrived at Gates Ave.

A woman at the scene had called the police to complain that her friend was “damaging the wall”.
