Default White hero cop killed in Bronx during hand-to-hand struggle with also dead negro


White hero cop killed in Bronx during hand-to-hand struggle with armed suspect

Officer Brian Mulkeen

A hero NYPD officer was fatally shot early Sunday during a desperate, hand-to-hand struggle with an armed suspect just after midnight on the grounds of the Edenwald Houses in The Bronx.

Officer Brian Mulkeen, 33, a six-year veteran of the department, did not survive three gunshot injuries, Chief of Department Terence Monahan told reporters at Jacobi Hospital, where doctors had worked to save his life.

Sources said Mulkeen had been shot with his own weapon in the head, chest and legs as he and the suspect wrestled on the ground.

The suspect, too, was fatally shot. “Five officers at the location fired their service weapons, striking the man,” Monahan said.

The fallen officer’s last words, recorded by his body-camera as he wrestled on the ground with the suspect, were “He’s reaching for it! He’s reaching for it!” Monahan told reporters.

Moments later, “numerous shots” were fired, he said.

“Officer Mulkeen’s gun fired five times,” Monahan said. “At this point, it is not clear who fired Officer Mulkeen’s gun.”

The suspect’s gun, a 32 caliber revolver, did not appear to have been fired, he said.

“As cops we know how rewarding our profession can be,” the chief added, his sadness apparent in his voice.

“But I’ll tell you: There is absolutely no worse moment on our job than this. As we stand here this morning, a young man with a bright future who courageously patrolled some of New York City’s toughest streets has tragically lost his life.”

The deadly encounter happened just after 12:30 a.m., as Mulkeen and two fellow plainclothes officers with the Bronx Borough Anti-Crime Unit, which is based in the nearby 47th Precinct, hopped out of their vehicle to speak with the suspected gang member, Monahan said.

“They were there because of gang activity that included recent shootings,” Monahan said.

The suspect, whose name was not released early Sunday, broke into a run, Monahan said.

It was Mulkeen — who lived in Yorktown Heights with his girlfriend, also a cop in The Bronx, with the 44th Precinct — who caught up with the suspect and tackled him first.

It was unclear at what point it had become apparent that the suspect was armed.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
