Off-duty NYC cop shot, suspect killed
And here's Commissioner Kelly's stunning display of ignorant hyperbole:BRONX — A heroic off-duty NYPD officer was shot last night after breaking up a mugging in The Bronx - but still managed to chase down and kill one of the robbers, officials said.
Ivan Marcano, 27, applied pressure to the gunshot wound on his chest while returning fire, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
Immediately followed by a grain of inconvenient truth:"In a remarkable display of marksmanship and cool under fire, Officer Marcano fired, striking one of the suspects in the head," Kelly said.
Hey, at least no bystanders got shot!A witness said he heard at least 10 shots. "It happened quickly. When I turned around, there was a dead guy lying on the ground under the car," said Emilio Acevedo, 17.
