A man wanted in a shooting incident last month was shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire with officers on a New York City street, police said Thursday.
The shooting occurred on Thursday afternoon after a NYPD fugitive task force arrived at a Queens address looking for the suspect in a non-fatal shooting of four people in September.
Officers tried to stop him as he entered a car to get away and crashed into another vehicle about a mile away, prompting a short foot pursuit, police said.
After the suspect drew two handguns, the officers can be heard on a body camera telling him several times to drop the weapons, Chief of Department Terence Monahan said at a briefing.
“The suspect then apparently fired at least four times at the officers and the officers returned fire numerous times, striking the suspect.” Monahan said.
Video obtained by a bystander and provided to NBC New York appears to capture at least a dozen gunshots.
The unidentified man was pronounced dead at the hospital. No officers were injured.
The two guns in the man's possession were recovered at the scene, police said.
