Late last night, an off-duty cop was jumped at 91st Street and Riverside Park. He fired at the suspect, who got away and managed to take the cops gun!
WABC 7 reported, "Initially, there was apparently some sort of assault between the officer and the suspect. When that happened, the officer reportedly reached for his gun and began firing. The suspect was not hit. Then, during a scuffle, the officer lost his gun and suffered a minor head injury." Lost turned into stolen, as police say the gun was taken from the cop.
Police flooded the park in search of the gun and suspect—they found the gun, but the suspect is still at large. Neighbors believes they heard around eight gunshots.
