NYPD Officer Shot, Bullet Proof Vest Saved His Life

NYPD Officer Shot, Bullet Proof Vest Saved His Life

Police said Thursday they're looking for two men in connection with a string of Brooklyn robberies between April and July.

Police said officers were responding to a report of an emotionally disturbed person when a man opened fire. This is an example of the fact that our officers go into any situation and how it might turn on a moments notice.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said: "This young man was definitely saved by his vest, made all the difference here".

Officers arrived at the home, where they talked with the mother of the suspected gunman, police said. It began when a woman called 911 telling the dispatcher her son was acting erratically but he was not violent, was not armed and she needed help.

Police then deployed a high-tech robot with a camera to enter the bedroom where Sookdeo was holed up where he was seen lying on the floor, sources said.

At a press conference later in the evening, the mayor said Nguyen is from the 75th Precinct, has more than two years of experience on the job and was in good spirits during the visit.

"What could have been just another day, just another call turned into something much worse, and thank God our officer's going to come through it", de Blasio said. "Our officer is going to come through it, he's a courageous young man, he's going to come through it". Police cars lined several streets in the neighborhood as helicopters circled overhead.

The officer was brought to Jamaica Hospital with non-hazardous wounds.
