Police say a 12-year veteran New York City officer was fatally shot while sitting in her patrol car with her partner in what one sergeant is calling a "clear assassination."
Police Sgt. Brendan Ryan says 48-year-old Officer Miosotis Familia died at a hospital early Wednesday. He says the attack "appears to be an isolated incident — clear assassination."
They say a person believed to be a bystander was struck by a bullet and is in stable condition.
The attack happened in the Bronx around 12:30 a.m. While the injured officer's partner radioed for assistance, other officers spotted the suspect running and confronted him. Police say the officers shot and killed the suspect after he drew a revolver on them.
Police identified the suspect as 34-year-old Alexander Bonds.
