Two innocent bystanders were shot when NYPD officers fired shots on a crowded Manhattan street in an attempt to subdue a man who was behaving strangely.

Oops, sorry! NYPD Cops Shoot 2 Innocent Bystanders Instead of Perp

In a statement, the NYPD said the 35-year-old man was walking through traffic erratically and was blocking vehicles, and pretended to point a weapon at officers:

“The male was blocking traffic and appeared to be attempting to be struck by vehicles when the officer attempted to take him into custody,” the statement said. “The male eluded the officer, and when additional officers responded to the scene, the male put his hand in his pocket and then took it out, simulating that he was shooting at the officers.”

Two officers fired a total of three shots at the man.

They missed their perp and shot a 54-year-old woman in the right knee and a grazed a 35-year-old woman in the buttocks. Both women are listed in stable conditions and do not have life-threatening injuries.

The man was subdued by a police sergeant with a Taser and taken to Bellevue Hospital. He is listed in stable condition and was described as “emotionally disturbed.”

Interestingly, no mention was made of the “emotionally disturbed” behavior of the officers that erratically opened fire into a crowd of innocent civilians in bustling Times Square. Because what could possibly go wrong with that?

    Firing into crowds?

  2. These police used their guns deadly force totally recklessly and should lose their jobs, and go to prison. If a civilian fired his gun in such reckless and unjustified circumstance, the gun would be confiscated, and the shooter charged with many many crimes and go to prison, and lose the right to keep and bear arms. Same should apply to these cops.
