NY detective killed in friendly fire incident, commissioner says

"With the suspect advancing toward them, the officers discharged their weapons and retreated out of the store", O'Neill said. O'Neill said that Simonsen was likely killed by friendly fire.

De Blasio said Wednesday all flags in the city would be lowered to half-staff to honor the slain officer.

"Sources said the detective and sergeant, both of whom were assigned to the local 102nd Precinct Detective Squad, responded after the perpetrator walked into the T-Mobile store with a gun and a duffle bag and took two people hostage and brought them into a back room". Simonsen was struck in the chest and died at the hospital.

Investigators look over the area after a few New York City police officers were shot while responding to a robbery at a T-Mobile store in the Queens borough of N.Y., on February 12, 2019.

"They did not hesitate".

Sgt. Gorman was shot in the leg but is expected to recover. At first, the front of the store appeared empty, he said.

Both Simonsen and Gorman were taken by patrol vehicle to Jamaica Hospital, officials said.

Michael Paladino, president of the Detectives' Endowment Association, said at the press conference that he had seen Det.

Pompeo had briefed lawmakers about the investigation but the secretary of state did not disclose any further details. He will hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Modi on wide range of issues of mutual interest.

The suspect, described by O'Neill as a 27-year-old career criminal, was shot multiple times and is listed as stable, O'Neill said. "His mom, who has suffered so much. His wife. The shock that they're feeling was so painful to see".

Arwin Singh, a 31-year-old construction contractor who lives across from the T-Mobile store, told the outlet: 'I looked out and the cops were running into [the store] to get them.

Witnesses to the shocking shootout reported hearing at least 15 to 20 gunshots exchanged between police and the suspects.

He added: 'The store has been robbed before but nothing as bad as this'. The other officer's condition wasn't immediately clear, but officials said there was concern about his injury.

"He was the kind of fellow who led by example", Palladino said. Brian Simonsen is shown. He graduated from the New York Police Department Police Academy on October 24, 2000, the News-Review reported at the time. "That bravery and resolve is something we all need to understand".

"Shots fired! Shots fired!" an officer is heard yelling.

He has been arrested at least 11 times since 2012, records show, and he was wanted by police in connection with a January 19 robbery at another cellphone store.

Brian Simonsen is the first NY police officer to die in the line of duty since July 2017. Bonds, who had railed about police and prison officers in a Facebook video months earlier, was fatally shot by officers soon after the attack.
