ATF NY Offers Reward in Police Officer Shooting

New York -- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has matched the New York City Police Department’s $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of the individual wanted in shooting of an off-duty NYPD officer on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023. Law enforcement often looks to the community for information to help solve violent gun crime. The suspect shot the officer during an apparent robbery attempt in the vicinity of Ruby Street and Linden Boulevard in Brooklyn.

“We are requesting the public’s assistance to help law enforcement locate this dangerous suspect,” said ATF New York Field Division Special Agent in Charge John DeVito. “ATF will not rest until the criminal responsible for this cowardly attack is apprehended and brought to justice.”

Anyone with information about this crime should contact NYPD Crime Stoppers 1-800-577-TIPS or may DM @NYPDTips
