Off-duty NYPD officer shot, expected to survive

NEW YORK (AP) -- An off-duty New York Police Department officer alerted to a robbery taking place confronted the suspects, one of whom shot him, police said. The officer, who is expected to live, fatally shot one of the suspects.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Officer Ivan Marcano was sitting in the passenger seat of his car on Harrison Avenue in the Bronx around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when his girlfriend saw two men robbing a third.

She told Marcano, who got out of the car, pulled out his gun and shield and identified himself as a police officer, Kelly said.

"As soon as he did, one of the suspects fired, striking Officer Marcano in the chest," Kelly said Wednesday evening at a news conference with Mayor Michael Bloomberg at the Bronx hospital where the officer was taken.

The suspects got into a car and fled. Marcano got back into his car, and his girlfriend took him to get medical attention.

A block away, the officer's girlfriend honked at cars stopped at a red light. A white car in front of her jerked forward, hitting a livery cab and then a parked car before going onto the sidewalk where it came to a stop, Kelly said. Three men got out.

Marcano recognized them and got out of his car, taking cover some distance away. Holding his left hand over his wound, with his gun in his right hand, he approached the men and fired one shot, Kelly said.

He then moved to another location and fired again. "In a remarkable display of marksmanship and cool under fire, Officer Marcano fired, striking one of the suspects in the head," Kelly said.

The man died at the scene. The other men ran off in different directions.

Marcano followed one of the men, and came across an ambulance, which got him to the hospital, Kelly said. Marcano is currently in stable condition at Bronx Lebanon Hospital.

A gun was recovered at the scene.

Marcano joined the Police Department in 2007 and is assigned to Transit District 12, Bloomberg said.

The group COP SHOT has posted a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects wanted in Wednesday night's shooting.
The gf has to give him the poop chute after this.



What's black and white and red all over?
Milwaukee, Wis., October 14 -- A desperate attempt to kill Col. Theodore Roosevelt tonight failed when a 32 caliber bullet aimed directly at the heart of the former president and fired at short range by the crazed assailant, spent part of its force in a bundle of manuscript containing the address which Co. Roosevelt was to deliver tonight, and wounded the Progressive candidate for President.
Col. Roosevelt delivered part of his scheduled address with the bullet in his body, his blood staining his white vest as he spoke to a huge throng at the auditorium. Later, he collapsed, weakened by the wound, and was rushed to Emergency hospital.

"In a remarkable display of marksmanship and cool under fire, Officer Marcano fired, striking one of the suspects in the head,"
That would be a remarkable display of marksmanship is police were trained for head shots... and not center mass. Don't get me wrong... kudos to that cop for the head shot... plug his melon and save the taxpayers the bill for room and board... but unless this guy is Inspector Callahan, he shouldn't be aiming at a head.
