    After the police officer was shot, cops found the alleged shooter (pictured) suffering from a bullet wound at E. 125 St.

    An NYPD officer has died after he was shot in the head Tuesday night by a gunman in East Harlem, police sources said.

    The officer took a bullet to the forehead as he and other officers chased the man, who was riding a bicycle, at E. 120 St. and FDR drive around 8:45 p.m., a high-ranking police source said.


    Rescuers rushed the cop to Harlem Hospital, where he died.

    According to a preliminary investigation, the chase began at E. 102 St. and FDR Drive, police sources said. Officers were on the scene in response to reports of a man with a gun in the area.

    After the police officer was shot, cops found a man, believed to be involved in the shooting, suffering from a bullet wound at E. 125 St., the sources said. He was taken into custody.


    Mayor Bill de Blasio rushed from Gracie Mansion during a function for the Gracie Mansion Conservancy after hearing of the shot officer.

    At least one gun was recovered from the scene, and cops took a man believed to be involved in the shooting into custody.
    At least one gun was recovered.

    Authorities shut down the FDR Drive between E. 120 St. and E. 125 St. as they investigated.

    Ok, Fair point

    But there is no proven war on cops. It is purely a talking point

    Where as systemic racism/bias against the black community is real

    ^ Is there really a war on police in the media? Or is it that they're being held accountable by the media for actions that seem questionable? I say the latter, but if you have legit proof of said PR war, please do share.

    This is true.It happens with all news stories though. Look at all of the false info that was originally reported on the bomblock boy hoax.I believe that the media has a different agenda. I find it interesting that the stories that make it big are always about a white cop shooting a black man, even though police kill more whites each year than any other race.It polarizes the issue. I believe that this is intentional and deliberate.

    I wasn't talking about a PR war.

    I was talking about the talking point of the far right that the police are being targeted.

    I don't think there is a PR war against the police either. Just that some in media are shedding light on a problem what was always there.

    Anyway, apparently we were referring to different things. So lets agree to disagree (I dunno if we even disagree acutally :lol:) because I'm not up to argue semantics

    Dog, that's what the media does. They sensationalize. WITH LITERALLY ALMOST EVERYTHING. This isn't anything new, so no, there isn't some newfangled war on the police in the media.

    War on police.:lol:

    The way some of you guys' brains work is fascinating.

    Agree to disagree bro. This isn't the thread for this debate.

    RIP to the officer who passed.
