Suspect Killed, Three Law Enforcement Injured in a Bronx Shooting

Suspect Killed, Three Law Enforcement Injured in a Bronx Shooting

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.

If you were injured in a shooting and fear that you might not be able to cover your medical expenses, it’s time to seek help from a personal injury attorney.

First of all your lawyer would review your case and will tell you what you can expect in the future. Some cases are clear and the victim can easily collect their damages. However, things may become complex and may require deep knowledge and experience in the area.
