A New York City police officer has died after he was fatally shot while conducting a vehicle stop, authorities said Monday. 

A pair of officers stopped a vehicle in Queens at 1919 Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway just before 5:48 p.m. as part of the NYPD Community Response Team, the NYPD said.

As a pair of officers were approaching the car, the 34-year-old suspect, who has 21 prior arrests according to the New York Post, displayed a firearm and pointed it at them when he refused to exit the car, NYPD Commissioner Edward Caban told reporters. The suspect then opened fire, striking the officer in the stomach. 

“We’re here far too many times,” Caban said. 

Another officer returned fire and struck the suspect, whose gun was recovered at the scene.


The driver of the vehicle was arrested in April 2023 on a gun charge, police said.
