NYPD officer shoots suspect in Brooklyn foot chase

An NYPD officer shot dead a man suspected of a previous shooting during a chase in Brooklyn on Thursday night, police said.

The officer and another police officer were investigating a double shooting on Kosciuszko Street and Broadway just after 9:30 p.m. when they spotted the suspect nearby and “engaged” the man, Police Commissioner Jeffrey Maddrey said at a news conference early Friday.

But the man fled and the police gave chase. During the pursuit, officers saw the man grab his waist and “turn toward them,” prompting one of the officers to open fire, Maddrey said.

Police shot the suspect dead after the suspect grabbed his waist "facing them,” officials said.

The officer fired two shots and hit the suspect once in the leg, but he continued to flee and ran into an apartment building on Patchen Avenue, according to the police chief.

Police were able to enter the building and arrest the suspect before he entered an apartment.

The suspect was taken to hospital and two men who were in the home he tried to break into were taken for questioning by police, Maddrey said.

Police had not seized a weapon early Friday.

Two men were injured in the earlier shooting, which police believe may be linked to the suspect. They were both hospitalized with gunshot wounds and are expected to survive, police said.

Another suspect in the same shooting had already been arrested prior to the police pursuit, Maddrey said. The suspect was armed with a firearm, police said.
