  • New York cop shot in head in “unprovoked attack”

Familia is the eighth New York City police officer shot and killed in the line of duty over the last five years.

The attack on Familia closely echoed the murder of two NYPD officers in December 2014, when a man traveled to the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn from Baltimore with the intention of killing police.

A New York Police Department officer was killed after what police described as an unprovoked attack. A bystander was hit in the stomach by a bullet and is in stable condition, police said. The video doesn't capture the shooting but shows him running from the scene with a gun in his hand, police said.

Familia was a 12-year veteran of the police department, and was just wrapping up her shift when the suspect fired the single fatal shot into her police vehicle, the AP reported.

Officer Familia had served with the New York City Police Department for 12 years and was assigned to the 46th Precinct.

An NYPD officer is heard frantically shouting for help after his partner was fatally shot Wednesday.

The suspect, Alexander Bonds, 34, of the Bronx borough, was on parole for robbery in Syracuse, New York, according to a police source.

New York City police commissioner called the incident an "unprovoked attack".

The shooting recalled the assassination of two uniformed officers as they sat in their marked police vehicle on a street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn in December, 2014.

A female New York Police Department officer was assassinated as she sat in her vehicle on Wednesday. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, just six of the 135 officers killed in the line of duty nationwide previous year were women. "After this shocking and sudden attack, her fellow officers came to aid immediately".

Police said they were trying to establish the motive for the shooting. "There were police officers everywhere".

Police say there are no oustanding suspects and that this investigation is ongoing.
