    NYPD Officer Shoot, Wound Teen Who Fired At Them During Foot Pursuit

    Someone with a gun in the city illegally? How is this possible?

    The officers tried to stop Melendez near the corner of E. 119th St. and Lexington Ave. after they spotted him adjusting his waistband in a manner that suggested he was carrying a concealed handgun, police said.

    Several witnesses reported hearing the officers yell, “Police! Stop!” as they confronted Melendez, who was packing a black, semi-automatic pistol, a police source said.

    But Melendez ran away, heading east on E. 119th St., cops said. He whirled and fired at the officers near the corner of Third Ave. He was shot along Third Ave. near E. 120th St., cops said.
    and a story like this wouldn't be complete without complete deinial:

    His mother, Mildred Faverey, 47, who visited Melendez in the hospital last night, said he went out with friends Saturday night after caring for his 8-month-old daughter.

    “That’s not like my son,” Faverey said of the charges against him. “He wouldn’t do that.”

    “He’s the greatest father to his daughter,” she added, wiping away tears. “He told me, ‘Mommy, trust me, I didn’t do what they said I did.’”

    Melendez has eight prior arrests, including collars for robbery, marijuana possession and criminal mischief, a police source said.

    He's lucky he isn't taking an eternal dirt nap.

    Seems like nothing is anyone's fault these days even when confronted with the evidence.

    Real choir-boy marerial there. Mildred needs to open her eyes AND some judge needs to put him away for GOOD so there is NO next time.........because the NEXTtime he might actually get 'lucky' and shoot a cop. We DO NOT need anymore of that business!

    Every axe murderer has a mother who loves him. This dirtbag has a mother who loves him...even if shooting this repeat offender and converting him into a dead offender is what is needed.
    I understand how this mother feels, now she needs to feel how the rest of society feels.OMOYMV
