New York City man charged in shooting of police officer
May 3, 2015 7:15 PM
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A man sought for illegal gun possession was charged on Sunday with the attempted murder of a New York City plainclothes police officer who was shot in the head while in an unmarked car, authorities said.
Officer Brian Moore, 25, was in critical but stable condition at Jamaica Hospital, a spokeswoman for the New York Police Department said.
Arrested in Saturday's shooting in the New York borough of Queens was Demetrius Blackwell, 35, of Queens.
Police said Blackwell shot at Moore and another officer early on Saturday evening as the officers were sitting in their unmarked car in a middle-class Queens neighborhood, police said.
The officers had been trying to question Blackwell, who has an extensive criminal background, after they saw him seeming to adjust an object in his waistband, police said.
Blackwell pulled out a gun and fired several times into the vehicle, police said, adding that the officers did not have a chance to get out of the car or return fire.
Blackwell was charged on Sunday with two counts of first-degree attempted murder as well as aggravated assault on a police officer, first degree assault and weapon possession.
He was ordered held without bail.
"Last night’s shooting once again reminds us of the dangers that our police officers face each day," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.
If convicted, Blackwell faces the possibility of 25 years to life in prison.
Police said Blackwell was wanted on outstanding charges including grand larceny, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.
The shooting took place five months after the fatal ambush of two uniformed New York City police officers in Brooklyn.
The gunman in that case had said he wanted to avenge the deaths of black men killed in confrontations with white officers.
The shooting of Moore, who is white, initially sparked concern it was a replay of the Brooklyn murders. It occurred as tensions are running high in Baltimore over the death last month of a black man from injuries sustained while in police custody.
But asked if the suspect expressed any anti-police sentiment, Police Commissioner William Bratton said there was no indication of that. "We haven't identified any activity on his part whatsoever on social media," he told reporters.
Moore is the fifth New York City officer shot in five months, police said.
New York policeman dies two days after shooting
4 May 2015
From the section US & Canada
A plainclothes policeman has died two days after he was shot in the head in New York City, officials say.
Brian Moore, 25, was shot on Saturday while attempting to question a suspect from an unmarked police car in the borough of Queens.
Officials said he died from his injuries on Monday at Jamaica Hospital, where he was taken after the shooting.
Demitrius Blackwell, 36, was arrested soon after the incident and has since been charged on several counts.
Moore is the fifth police officer to be shot - and the third to be killed - in New York in the past three months.
"Our hearts are heavy today as we mourn the loss of Police Officer Brian Moore," he said.
Police said Mr Moore and his partner Erik Janssen were in an unmarked car when they saw a man adjust something on his belt.
Suspecting he was carrying a gun, the officers approached him. Blackwell pulled out a gun and fired several times at the vehicle, they added.
Blackwell was recently paroled after serving seven years in prison for attempted murder and reportedly has a history of assaulting police officers.
Demitrius Blackwell was charged on Sunday with attempted murder, although more serious charges are now likely
In December, two officers were shot dead in their car in New York by a man who then committed suicide. The gunman in that case had posted anti-police messages on social media but there is no indication of a similar motive in the latest shooting.
It comes amid heightened tensions in the US over the police's use of force, with riots sparked last week in Baltimore after the death of a black man in police custody.
Six police officers are facing criminal charges over the death of Freddie Gray, which has been ruled a homicide. They deny any wrongdoing.
