NEW YORK (AP) — A search is under way for a second suspect in the deadly shooting of a New York City police officer who was killed while responding to a routine call.
Police say Officer Peter Figoski was backing up other officers checking out a reported apartment break-in early Monday in Brooklyn when a fleeing suspect shot the 22-year veteran in the face.
Lamont Pride, 27, has been arrested on murder charges. A second man who had struggled with Figoski's partner is being sought.
The 47-year-old officer was the second NYPD officer to be killed on duty this year, the first in a shooting.
