Teens Arrested for Shooting of Off-Duty NYPD Officer

We all know our police officers are under attack right now.

Last week, an off-duty NYPD officer was shot, with the city having seven officers having already been shot, mostly in ambush-style attacks.

Police were able to track down the shooters in the case of the off-duty officer, and both were teens.

In Custody

Early Saturday morning, the announcement was made that the NYPD had caught the alleged shooters.

A 16-year-old male has been charged with attempted murder.

The 17-year-old was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon, and attempted murder.

The off-duty officer was leaving a vigil last weekend when he was shot in Harlem.

At the time, NYPD Chief of Housing Jeffrey Maddrey stated, “This is our seventh police officer shot this year.

“[O]ur gun violence has been increasing, and I’m just making a plea to all of our communities, all of our citizens, our police — we all need to support one another.

“We have to [discourage] gun violence.

“We don’t have to live like this.

“We shouldn’t have to live like this.

“This is the best city in the world.”

The officer involved in the shooting was listed in stable condition at last reporting.

Mayor Eric Adams has had a tough time slowing down the violence since taking over.

Murder rates are down over last year, but that is not for lack of effort.

The city’s shootings are up a whopping 29.7 percent already, not exactly ideal for a candidate that promised to bring law and order back to the city.

Thursday alone, 10 people were shot in the city.

Do you think Adams can get New York City under control or do you think Adams is failing his people?
