The situation began when officers with the city’s Youth Violence Task Force pulled over a vehicle near the intersection of Humboldt Avenue and Ruthven Street, Evans said. As officers exited their car, a man in the pulled-over vehicle got out and opened fire.Officer Moynihan took a bullet to the face, and he's in critical condition at the hospital.
Evans said in a news conference at the hospital Friday evening that Moynihan was responsive when he first arrived. The shooting occurred around 6:40 p.m.
“But he’s in... basically an induced coma at this time and they’re examining the extent of his injuries,” Evans said.The guy that opened fire was killed at the scene.
So, let's review. The cop makes a traffic stop, the guy gets out of the car and starts shooting. One cop critically injured, the shooter dead at the scene. Of course, the shooter happens to be a black guy, so the Twitter-verse explodes.
I'll be praying for Officer Moynihan, along with the others on my prayer list. While I'm at it, I'll also pray for the leftist Twitter users who are first to portray the police as murderous racists. Those people make me sick.
