NEW YORK -- A New York police officer was shot in an "unprovoked attack" while in a police command vehicle early Wednesday and is in extremely critical condition, authorities say.
The New York Police Department tweeted that the officer, a 12-year veteran of the force, was in the vehicle with her partner in the New York City borough of the Bronx.
Such vehicles are stationary and resemble trailers, police explained.
Police sources told CBS New York the suspect is seen on camera walking out of a bodega, putting his hoody on, walking up to the passenger side of the vehicle and firing into it. The officer was sitting in the passenger side of the mobile command unit.
While her partner radioed for assistance, other officers confronted the suspect, who was running, one block away. The suspect drew a revolver and the officers fatally shot him, authorities said, adding that a silver revolver was recovered at the scene.
