NYPD Mourns Officer Miosotis Familia, Killed In Bronx Attack

The 12-year veteran of the force Miosotis Familia was shot to death by Alexander Bonds in a Bronx neighborhood shortly after midnight, the Associated Press reported.

"Shots fired! 10-85!" Familia's partner shouted frantically into his radio after the gunfire, including the code for an officer down.

According to police, a bystander was hit in the stomach by a bullet during the confrontation, but they are now in stable condition.

Patrick J. Lynch, the president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association in New York City, urged the public to be on the lookout for anti-police activity in the area.

It remains unclear what prompted the attack, officials said. "Keep her family in your prayers". She leaves behind 3 children.

Familia was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The NYPD said the officer was shot while in a patrol vehicle with her partner at East 183rd Street and Morris Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Chuck Schumer tweeted: Woke to the bad news that Officer Miosotis Familia was shot & killed in the Bronx overnight.

Sean Spicer Confirms WH 'Meeting with Potential People' for Press Vacancies
"Obviously, we've been dealing with a lot of other issues today", Spicer told reporters during a White House press briefing . Tuesday morning, amid criticism, an on-camera briefing with Spicer was announced.

Familia's partner, who was unharmed in the shooting, called in for help and other officers responded quickly, coming upon the suspect about a block away.

Even a woman who said her husband had been arrested by Familia had only kind words for the slain officer. "There were police officers everywhere". "I don't care about 100 police watching this", 34-year-old ex-convict Alexander Bonds said, adding: "It's time for people to wisen up".

She and her partner were sitting in a police command vehicle in the Bronx.

"Well, she was sitting in the vehicle, and he came up and fired a round into the vehicle, so I don't know if anything could be more unprovoked than that". He pulled a gun out on two officers who confronted him and was shot dead.

A New York City police officer was fatally shot in an unprovoked attack on early July 5 morning.

"Let's be clear. This was nothing less than an assassination of a police officer". Police said Bones was on parole out of Syracuse for robbery. "There were police officers everywhere".

In October, Bonds posted another video of a man scuffling with police officers after they allegedly use a Tazer on his wife.

Police say there are no oustanding suspects and that this investigation is ongoing.
