Police Commissioner James O’Neill says at around 2:45pm, a woman called saying a man had broken into an apartment. In the apartment was the man’s estranged wife, their 3-year-old son, the 911 caller and a 13-year-old child. Once police arrived, the man escaped in a red Jeep. They located the vehicle about a mile from the apartment. The man was armed with 45-caliber pistol and started shooting. Police returned the fire and killed the man.

The suspect was 35-year-old Manuel Rosales. It is unclear as to why Rosales was there and what happened inside of the apartment before he left. Paul Tuozzolo was a father of two young children. Mayor Bill de Blasio described him as “a man who committed his life to protecting all of us.” He said,

“The city is in mourning and the family of the NYPD is in mourning, particularly the men and women of the four-three precinct.”
