Third NYC officer shot this year, in Staten Island drug raid

A third NYC officer shot this year in the line of duty early on Thursday morning. This is the third shooting of an NYPD police officer in 36 hours.

Authorities say a narcotics detective suffered a non-fatal, but “possibly career-ending” gunshot wound to the leg while executing a warrant as part of a long-term drug investigation in Staten Island.

We stand here at a hospital once again, extremely fortunate that our detective, New York City’s detective, is going to recover after being shot,” NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said.

The detective, who has been with the NYPD for 10 years, was experiencing some complications and was undergoing surgery at Staten Island University Hospital, authorities said.

He has not been identified, but police said the detective has received numerous medals and commendations and had never before fired his weapon in the performance of his duty.

The other two police shootings have come in Harlem and the Bronx, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said in a press conference.

The shooter was identified

The shooter was identified as Marshall’s roommate, Nelson Pizarro, 39.

A 9mm Beretta handgun was recovered from the scene. US Police said he has seven priors in New York state, including aggravated license, criminal possession of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment.

He also brought in contraband when in prison, and had another arrest for criminal possession of a controlled substance and weapons possession.
