Veteran Detective Brian Simonsen Killed By Friendly Fire During Queens Robbery

"Make no mistake about it, friendly fire aside, it's because of the actions of the suspect that Detective Simonsen is dead", O'Neill added. As they entered, someone emerged from the back fitting the description of the suspect who pointed what appeared to be a handgun.

The mayor said that he and the commissioner had told Simonsen's family that "the New York City Police Department will be there for them, the people of New York City will be there for them".

A 27-year-old suspect in the robbery, who has an extensive arrest history, was injured and is in custody, police said.

The second detective was shot in one leg and listed as stable, police said. Simonsen was considered a leader among his peers, Mr. Paladino said.

O'Neill said a sergeant, who has been on the force for 8 and a half years, was also wounded and is in stable condition.

O'Neill and the Mayor Bill de Blasio met with the family at a hospital.

"No sirens, guys", the dispatcher warns.

Simonsen and Gorman were working on another case nearby when the call came over and arrived around the same time as patrol officers, O'Neill said.
