NYPD cop shot in Brooklyn saved by bulletproof vest

A police officer was shot in the back in Brooklyn on Thursday night — and might have been saved when the bullet struck the rear armor of his protective vest, law-enforcement sources said.

The 27-year-old cop was responding to a domestic dispute at 1798 Bergen St. in Crown Heights just after 9 p.m. when the gunman opened fire, according to police sources.

The suspect, identified as William Moss, was on his way to his girlfriend’s house when he allegedly told her that he had a gun and was going to open fire when he got there, the sources said. Cops arrived at the residence after the girlfriend’s mother called 911.

The officers were talking to the younger woman when Moss arrived, shot the cop and fled, according to the sources.

Officers chased him to Prospect Place, where they fired several shots and took him into custody. It’s unclear if Moss returned fire.

The wounded officer was rushed to Kings County Hospital. His condition was not immediately known. Two other officers were treated for ringing in the ears.

Police officers gathered at the hospital late Thursday night to offer their support. Mayor de Blasio also held a press conference there early Friday.

“A man threatened his girlfriend and because the NYPD was there that woman is alive right now,” the mayor said.“Our officer, thank God, is going to be OK … As you saw today, the NYPD saved someone’s life.”

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea held up the officer’s protective vest at the press conference to show where the bullet had been lodged.

A witness said he heard several gunshots while working at a restaurant on Ralph Avenue.

“We just heard the gun. Like six, seven shots,” said the man, Paul, who didn’t give his last name.

“We just [saw] a lot of police. We work in the kitchen and didn’t go outside.”

A motive for the attack was unclear early Friday.

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was also on scene to investigate.

Sources said that Moss did not have any prior arrests. His only criminal record appeared to be a summons he received related to marijuana use.

There was a domestic incident reported at the Bergen Street address in October but Moss was listed as the victim in that complaint.

Gunman busted in NYPD cop ambush apologizes for shooting

The Brooklyn man who allegedly shot an NYPD cop in the back on Christmas Eve — but failed to wound his target thanks to a bulletproof vest — offered a feeble apology as he was led into court on Friday.

“I’m sorry, officer,” muttered William Moss from behind a blue facemask, when asked by The Post if he had a message for Connor Boalick, the lawman whose life he nearly ended.

“I wish it never happened.”

Handcuffed and wearing a gray Nike hoodie, Moss voiced his sudden regret as he was led into Brooklyn Criminal Court to answer charges including attempted murder and assault.

Moss, 20, allegedly fired two rounds into the back of Boalick around 9 p.m. Thursday, as the officer was taking a statement from Moss’ girlfriend, according to cops and sources.

Boalick and his partner were initially called out to the scene at Bergen Street and Ralph Avenue in Crown Heights because the woman accused Moss of threatening to shoot up her home, cops and sources have said.

Thanks to his bulletproof vest, Boalick, 27, escaped the cowardly attack from behind virtually unscathed, even leaving Kings County Hospital on Christmas morning.

While expressing gratitude that Boalick lived to tell the tale, Pat Lynch, the president of the Police Benevolent Association union, said at the hospital that lawmakers must help foster a pro-cop climate where criminals fear the consequences of shooting at the Finest.

Save a summonses for smoking marijuana, Moss had not previously crossed paths with the NYPD, according to cops and sources.

He is expected to be arraigned Christmas night.
