Two NYPD officers were shot a few blocks from my job. Reports that one was shot in the head and DOA at the hospital. I work on the hospital campus they were brought to. Soon as the helicopter took off and the NYPD copter landed seconds later I knew something terrible was happening.
Rest in Peace, Sarge.
