Just after midnight this morning, a brave NYPD police officer doing the job we asked him to do – the job that New Yorkers needed him to do – was shot and killed.
I will remind you that the information I’m about to give you is preliminary and subject to change as this investigation proceeds.
About 12:30 this morning, NYPD police officers assigned to the Bronx Borough Anti-Crime Unit were patrolling the streets around the Edenwald Houses – 1132 East 229th Street. They were there because of gang activity, which included recent shootings in the area.
Behind that location, three officers in one police car got out of their vehicle to question a man. The man fled and a foot pursuit ensued. As Officer Brian Mulkeen and his partner attempted to apprehend the man, a violent struggle on the ground began.
On body-worn camera video, Officer Mulkeen can be heard yelling, “He’s reaching for it – he’s reaching for it.”
At this time numerous shots were fired and our officer was struck a total of 3 times.
Five officers at the location fired their service weapons striking the man. The suspect was pronounced deceased on the scene and his firearm – a .32-caliber revolver – was recovered by police. Our critically-injured officer was rushed here to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased.
Police Officer Brian Mulkeen was 33 years old. He served more than 6-and-a-half years with the New York City Police Department. He was appointed on January 9, 2013. He lived in Yorktown Heights with his girlfriend, who is also a cop in the Bronx.
The suspect is a 27-year-old man who was on probation until 2022 for a narcotics-related arrest last year. He has several prior arrests in various places, including a burglary conviction in Rockland County.
