NYPD Cop Randolph Holder Dies After Being Shot In The Head By Gunman

A beloved NYPD housing officer was killed late last night, shot in the head by a gunman during a chase and gunfight on a pedestrian overpass above the FDR Drive in East Harlem, says officials.

Via NY Daily News:

Officer Randolph Holder, 33, was shot in the forehead by the callous gunman, who had stolen a bike and was being pursued by cops along the promenade hugging the East River around 8:30 p.m., Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. The brave officer died at 10:22 p.m. at Harlem Hospital.

A suspect, shot in the legs, was arrested.

Holder, who emigrated from Guyana, was a third-generation police officer, following in his father and grandfather’s footsteps in the line of duty, Bratton said during a somber press conference at the hospital.

The unmarried immigrant joined the NYPD in July 2010 and worked in Police Service Area 5, wearing Shield No. 13340 as he patrolled the public housing projects of East Harlem.

Do Black cops lives matter too??
