NYPD Officer Shot in Cypress Hills, Officials Say

A gunman blasted an NYPD officer twice in his bulletproof vest and arm then killed himself in a standoff at a Brooklyn home Thursday afternoon police said

Police in New York City are searching for a man who they say robbed a towing company last week.

"As the first officer approached the rear bedroom, the subject fired several shots, striking the officer several times", O'Neill said.

The officer, a woman, was shot in the arm, the spokeswoman said.


“The vest definitely saved him.”

"The officer did not return fire", said NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill. The suspect, identified as Andy Sookdeo, then barricaded himself in the room, forcing a standoff with police. When police later stormed he apartment, he was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The mayor and police commissioner showed off the vest during a news conference and credited it with saving the officer's life. His attacker killed himself after an armed standoff in Brooklyn, police said. She said in the 911 call her son was unarmed.

"It's a small-caliber round, so you're not going to be able to see where the impact was, but I did see the blunt force trauma injuries on the officer's chest", O'Neill said, according to New York Daily News.

The officer was treated by the medics with him, police said.
