Four New York City police officers are expected to recover after being shot during a wild shootout with a man barricaded in a Brooklyn home...
33-year-old Nakwon Foxworth crossed paths with police after threatening some movers at his apartment building with a gun.
Police say Foxworth barricaded himself with his pregnant girlfriend and infant son. She managed to escape with the baby in her arms, told officers he held her hostage and was armed. The officers began to enter and the suspect fired off 12 rounds hitting the officers.

Where is Al Sharpton? I mean after all, New York City is his town, isn't it? I don't THINK Al Sharpton hails from Sanford, Florida...
"We have now had eight - that's correct, eight - members of the department shot in the last four months. And this is the second time in the last 24 hours police have been fired upon by armed assailants," Bloomberg said.
What is the odds of the Police Officers hitting the suspect when firing 12 rounds?
White Native American?
White African American?
Or White Asian?
Where’s the damned halo? And no wings?? How dare Reuters, NBC, and the others allow this photo to be released without the obligatory enhancements?
There isn’t nearly enough special Kool-aid to handle the fallout of this grievous oversight!
Until the idiotic squeamishness about frying this kind of vermin is overcome, it’s just going to continue to get worse.
Count on it, Mayor.
I’m thinking that the cops should have to reimburse the taxpayers for the cost of the criminal’s medical treatment. It would encourage them to do a better job next time.
OMG! If Obama had a son, he'd look just like him!
They’re not a federally protected species.
It is a Federal Crime for felons to possess a firearm. As cited by federalcriminallawyer.us:
The federal offense of possession of a firearm by a felon is defined by statute, Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(1). The offense is a felony. The law provides the following: It shall be unlawful for any person- 1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year; *** to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.Federalcriminallawyer.us continues:
"Possession of a firearm by a felon is most often prosecuted in state court... But state charges give way to federal charges where the gun crossed state lines. Basically, if the federal government can establish that the gun was involved in some interstate activity, then it becomes a federal case. These cases are typically investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF)..."Given that the perp is one of Holder's people and a Obama son could-have-been, don't bet on them letting federal law enforcement do their duty here. "federal" role here. After all did not Derrick Bell's "Critical Race Theory" teach them that Blacks should not be held to the same (White) laws as Whites?
By the way, contrary to the article listing one of his convictions as "attempted murder," his NYS-DOC Prison Record (LINK) list the conviction for that prison sentence as "ATT JO - MURDER 2ND."
That’s a photo taken while he was incarcerated in one of NY’s State prisons. Tell-tale green pants (shirts, jackets, etc.) which are standard issue for cons. I see he’s had two previous bids, so hopefully he’ll be sentenced as a persistent felony offender.
Doesn’t Bloomberg realize these armed assailant are probably upset because he took away their trans fats and restricted their salt intake.
Politicians ran to the nearest CAMERA TO SCREAM FOR GUN CONTROL yet this guy is a career criminal who is walking free instead of being locked up, anyone see the despicable hypocracy here?
The suspect was struck as officers returned fire. He was hospitalized in stable but critical condition at Kings County Hospital.
Sounds like NYPD needs some serious target practice.
“We have now had eight - that’s correct, eight - members of the department shot in the last four months. And this is the second time in the last 24 hours police have been fired upon by armed assailants,” Bloomberg said.”
I wonder how many law abiding citizens who, because of Bloomberg aren’t allowed to fight back, have been attacked in the past 24 hours?
Just once, I’d like to see Bloomberg be the first one through the door.
>> Police say Foxworth barricaded himself with his pregnant girlfriend and infant son.
Not the best way to secure custody of one’s offspring.
LOL! Just had the mental image of Bloomberg in a horizontal position, being used as a door ram in a drug raid, with a surprised expression on his face.
“with a surprised expression on his face.”
Be kind of like one of them “Oh Sh?t” moments....
