Watch Police Commissioner Pays Tribute to NYPD Officer Killed in ‘Friendly Fire’ News Video

“Seven NYPD officers fired a total of 42 rounds during a chaotic scene outside a Queens cellphone store Tuesday evening as they responded to a robbery that left a detective from Calverton dead from friendly fire and his supervisor, a police sergeant from Seaford, with a gunshot wound to the leg, department brass said Wednesday.

“Det. Brian Simonsen, 42, of the 102nd Precinct, was fatally shot in the chest outside a T-Mobile store on Atlantic Avenue and 120th Street in Richmond Hill after confronting Christopher Ransom, said Kevin Maloney, commander of the NYPD’s Force Investigation Division.

“Ransom, a career criminal with a long arrest record, raised a weapon and simulated firing at Simonsen, a 19-year veteran of the force, and Sgt. Matthew Gorman, Maloney said at a news conference in Manhattan.

“Authorities later determined Ransom was wielding an imitation pistol that was recovered at the scene.”
