A suspect died and two U.S. Marshals and a NYPD detective were injured in a Bronx shooting on December 4. The incident happened in the Wakefield section of the Bronx, on Ely Avenue, in the early morning around 5:30 a.m.
The marshals were executing a warrant for a suspect when the shooting occurred. Several police units rushed to the scene after the shooting began. The suspect was shot at the scene and died. The police identified him as thirty-five-year-old Andre Sterling.
The man was wanted for allegedly shooting a Massachusetts State Police Trooper in the hand; that accident happened in Hyannis on Cape Cod on November 20.
The wounded Marshals and detective were immediately taken to Jacobi Hospital for medical treatments. Their injuries were non-life-threatening. The second suspect was also taken to the same hospital for treatment.
Shooting is a severe crime that won’t go unpunished. The case becomes even more complex if the shooting is at officers. Shooting and killing a person is a mal intention.
