Almost was bad, but it looks like the detective will be ok and it didn't turn out as well for the goons (I love how the Post called them that!) as they would have hoped. Here is to a speedy recovery of the detective!
Two charged in Miami robbery attempt of vacationing NYPD detective Harold Thomas - NYPOST.com
The goons, Mustafa Lee, 28, and Francisco Henriquez, 35, of Miami, have long rapsheets that include prior robbery convictions, cops said. The armed robbers ambushed Det. Harold Thomas, 48, at gunpoint in the courtyard outside his hotel room Friday, police said.
Thomas told cops he feared he would die and pulled his own gun before exchanging fire with the perps. The detective’s girlfriend and his partner on the Joint Terrorism Task Force told Miami Beach cops they were in their hotel rooms when they heard about a dozen shots and found Thomas on the ground, bleeding profusely.
The wounded cop was unconscious by the time police arrived but he recovered enough to give a full account of the crime and identify the suspects in a photo array from his hospital bed, sources told the Post. He is now in stable condition at Miami’s Ryder Trauma Center.
