NYPD officer shot and killed during struggle with suspect

NEW YORK CITY: A New York City police officer grappling with an armed man died early on Sunday (Monday in Manila) in the Bronx after being shot three times, possibly with his own gun. The 27-year-old suspect also died after five officers fired at him, police officials said. He has not been publicly identified yet. The New York Police Department identified the slain officer as 33-year-old Brian Mulkeen. “We lost a hero this evening,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference outside Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. Mulkeen was patrolling the streets around a city apartment complex at around 12:30 a.m. as part of a unit investigating potential gang activity, Chief of Department Terence Monahan said. Mulkeen and his partner tried to apprehend a man who had fled questioning, and a struggle on the ground ensued, Monahan said.
