A New York City police lieutenant was shot in the arm Sunday morning after an armed suspect opened fire inside a Bronx precinct about 12 hours after another officer was shot in the head while on patrol nearby, police authorities said.
The 8 a.m. incident took place in the 41st Precinct in the Longwood neighborhood of the Bronx, where the suspect walked in and began firing at the front desk, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said at a news conference later in the day.
Police sources tell ABC News the suspect is Robert Williams and that he is also the suspect in the shooting of an officer in a police vehicle that took place Saturday night.
The suspect hit a lieutenant in the arm and the officer returned a shot but missed, Shea said.
The suspect then allegedly went into another room and fired at uniformed officers and a civilian worker, before he was stopped and apprehended by officers, according to Shea. The entire Sunday incident was captured on surveillance video, according to the mayor.
