NYPD Officer Shot In Cypress Hills, Standoff With Suspect Continues

NYPD officer shot in Brooklyn: Police

The wounded officer has been named as Hart Nguyen, a 30-year-old father of two who joined NYPD in July 2015.

He and different officers had been reacting to a report of a sincerely bothered individual when a man opened fire, police said.

A video feed from a television news helicopter showed armed police officers with their guns drawn taking cover, first behind an ambulance and then behind an armored vehicle outside a home. Mayor de Blasio and other officials visited with him at the hospital Thursday.

Officers arrived at the home, where they talked with the mother of the suspected gunman, police said. "Immediately after the shooting, the 29-year-old subject remained in the rear bedroom".

The incident took place as police responded to a 911 call around 4.30 p.m. (0830GMT), Police Commissioner James O'Neill told journalists at a news conference.

Police officers and emergency medical technicians soon headed to the suspect's apartment after the call.

"He had a great attitude".

"What could have been just another day, just another call turned into something much worse, and thank God our officer's going to come through it", de Blasio said.

Nguyen of the 75th Precinct has been on the force for just over two years. "Our officer is going to come through it, he's a fearless young man, he's going to come through it". After a more than hourlong standoff, officers entered the bedroom and found the man dead with two weapons nearby, police said.

The officer was transported to Jamaica Hospital.
