NYPD officer assassinated in police vehicle
The police officer who was shot in the head while sitting in a police vehicle in the Bronx early Wednesday has died according to law enforcement sources.
A suspect came up and blasted her through the window without warning, sources said.
“It was an attempted cop assassination,” one law enforcement source told The Post.
The gunman approached the officer at 12:30 a.m. as she sat inside a temporary headquarters vehicle at East 183rd Street and Morris Avenue in Fordham Heights, according to sources.
The officer — a 12-year-veteran who is with the Anti Crime unit of the 46th Precinct — was rushed to St. Barnabus Hospital, where she was undergoing surgery but could not be saved.
