Officer Holder, age 33 a five-year veteran of NYPD who lived in Brooklyn was shot during a foot pursuit that escalated into an exchange of gunfire between the suspects and NYPD officers.

Officers pursued the suspect on foot “up First Avenue and then over a footbridge at 120th Street over the FDR Drive” where the exchange of gunfire began and Officer Holder was struck in the forehead. The officer’s partner returned fire, striking the gunman in the leg and buttocks. The wounded shooter was apprehended at 125th Street. “I heard so many gunshots,” said witness Angelique Martinez, 47. “It sounded like there was a shootout outside my building. It’s really scary.”


Witnesses reported they saw suspects along the footpath heading north on the FDR Drive, adjacent to the Harlem River, according to Bratton. Responding officers were informed by a victim who had his bike stolen after one of the individuals had him at gunpoint, Bratton said.

Officers spotted one of the suspects heading northbound on the bike on E 120th Street along the FDR Drive on the pedestrian overpass.

There was an exchange in gunfire between the suspect and two other officers, when one of the bullets hit Holder in the head.
