A New York Police Department officer was assassinated Wednesday morning after a person shot her in the face while she sat in her car.
The suspect walked up to the command vehicle and shot Officer Miosotis Familia’s car window multiple times, reports ABC News. Familia later died from her wounds after being taken to a Bronx hospital.
“She was on duty, serving this city, protecting people, doing what she believed in and doing the job she loved,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said during an early morning press conference. “After this sudden and shocking attack, her fellow officers came to her aid immediately.”
Familia’s partner, who was in the car at the time, escaped un-injured. Other NYPD officers came to the scene and confronted the suspect, Alexander Bonds.
