An NYPD housing officer was killed Tuesday night, shot in the head by a
trigger-happy perp during a chase and gunfight on a pedestrian overpass
above FDR Drive in East Harlem, police said.
Officer Randolph Holder, 33, was shot in the forehead by the callous
gunman, who had stolen a bike and was being pursued by cops along the
promenade hugging the East River around 8:30 p.m., Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. The brave officer died at 10:22 p.m. at Harlem Hospital.
A suspect, shot in the legs, was arrested.
