    Angry Man charged in Brooklyn cop shooting

    Man charged in Brooklyn cop shooting
    Police: Two suspects remain at-large


    Eyewitness News Team
    (East Flatbush-WABC, July 10, 2007) - Eyewitness News has learned that a man has been arrested and charged in the shooting of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.

    Sources tell Eyewitness News that 29-year-old Lee Woods, who was brought into custody earlier Tuesday, has been charged with:

    2 counts of attempted murder
    2 counts of assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon
    Criminal use of a firearm
    Unauthorized use of a vehicle
    Attempted hindering prosecution
    Tampering with physical evidence

    At least three times during a short walk to a waiting police cruiser, Woods claimed he was not one of three suspects responsible for the shooting. "I didn't do nothing!" he yelled out.

    Meanwhile, Officer Herman Yan was released Tuesday afternoon from Kings County Hospital. His partner remains hospitalized in extremely critical condition.

    With one in custody, the manhunt for two other fugitives intensified.

    The NYPD is after Dexter Bostick and Robert Ellis. Both have lengthy criminal records. The 34-year-old Bostick was paroled in 2004 for attempted criminal possession of a weapon, after he was paroled in 1999 following a stint behind bars for sodomy assault and robbery. Ellis is also a paroled sex offender.

    The department released mug shots of the men and announced that a reward for information leading to their capture had reached $79,000.

    One of the officers, Belarus-born Russel Timoshenko, 23, remained in "very, very grave condition" with a severe head wound, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. We're told they are gathering Timoshenko's close friends and family to his bedside for what could be a final embrace.

    One of Timoshenko's friends told Eyewitness News reporter Lucy Yang, "I want to be positive and optimistic but it's not the Russel that I recognize." The friend said the injured officer is not speaking but he was crying on Tuesday.

    Bloomberg, while lobbying with Kelly against rules restricting cities' access to federal data on the sources of illegal guns, said he believed supporters would change their view if they could meet Timoshenko's parents, "who see their son lying in an operating room and now clinging to life."

    Investigators have recovered three weapons they say were carried by the suspects: a .45-caliber handgun, a 9mm pistol and a Tec-9 automatic pistol.

    "We're still developing information as to where the guns came from," Kelly said.

    The incident occurred at 2:30 a.m. Monday in Brooklyn's Crown Heights section after the two officers used a laptop computer in their marked patrol car to do a random check of the license plates on the BMW. After discovering the plates didn't match the car, they turned on their flashing lights and pulled the car over.

    As the uniformed officers followed procedure by approaching from either side of the SUV, investigators believe two of the occupants simultaneously opened fire without warning, hitting Timoshenko first.

    A security camera from a daycare center at the intersection where the shooting took place captured grainy images of the officers approaching the stolen car. It also shows Timoshenko taking fire and falling backward, then Yan getting caught in a shootout, police said.

    Detectives who were canvassing the area while investigating an unrelated double homicide heard the shots and stopped to help the officers. Other police cars arrived moments later and rushed the victims to the hospital.

    Investigators later determined that the SUV, and the plates from the second vehicle, had been stolen from Five Towns Mitsubishi in Inwood, N.Y., on Long Island near the Queens border. Inside it were two .45-caliber shell casings and trash from a recent meal of fried chicken from a fast-food restaurant, police said.

    Investigators also obtained footage from a second camera showing three men ducking into a driveway next to a building after ditching the stolen vehicle a few blocks from the shooting. The three guns were discovered behind the building.

    Levy Hutchinson, Dexter Bostick's eldest brother, told Eyewitness News that the family is cooperating fully with police and insisted he has no idea where his brother is hiding.

    "If he did what they say he did, then so be it," he said. "He made his bed. Some of us chose this way, some of us chose that way. ... We told them everything we knew. ... We held nothing back from them."

    Sorry ass mugs. Prayers that the 77th precinct gets a hold of them for some of their special treatment.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Been watching this on the news here , so sad and scary at the same time. I can see why it is so hard to buy a gun in NY now. Had to take the one i had from texas back to texas and leave it with family because i couldnt get it swapped over here, and scumbags like these guys are the reason...

    Sending prayers to both familys for a speedy recovery

    Update:


    3 suspects in police shooting in custody
    Intense manhunt ends; injured officer remains paralyzed, has brain swelling
    The Associated Press
    Updated: 12:14 a.m. ET July 12, 2007

    NEW YORK - The third suspect in a shooting that left a New York City police officer paralyzed and his partner wounded was captured early Thursday in the Pennsylvania woods.

    A bloodhound picked up Robert J. Ellis’ scent near Tannersville, Pa., not far from where another suspect was apprehended Wednesday. Ellis tried to run but was captured by two Pennsylvania state troopers, said Pennsylvania State Police Capt. James Murtin.

    State troopers had captured Dexter Bostic along the remote section of Interstate 80 on Wednesday, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. But Ellis had eluded the troopers and disappeared into a wide, wooded median, police said.

    “It appears that he hunkered down for the night with no attempt to escape,” Murtin said Thursday.

    Bostic and Ellis, both 34, had been the subjects of an intense manhunt since Monday, when two New York City police officers were shot after pulling over a stolen SUV in Brooklyn.

    Officer Russel Timoshenko, 23, was shot in the face and neck and left paralyzed with brain swelling and unable to breathe on his own, Assistant District Attorney Anna-Siegga Nicolazzi said Wednesday. Officer Herman Yan, likely saved by his bulletproof vest, was released from a hospital Tuesday.

    The other suspect, Lee Woods, 29, was arrested Monday. A criminal complaint described Woods as the driver of the SUV but not a shooter. He was ordered held without bail on charges of attempted murder, assault of a police officer, weapon possession and other counts.

    Help provided by locals
    Investigators say Bostic and Ellis both opened fire when the officers approached the SUV early Monday. Yan managed to return fire before the SUV sped away.

    Kelly said the men initially evaded police with the help of an unidentified man who agreed to drive them to the Pocono Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania.

    Police located that driver Tuesday after getting a tip, and the driver revealed the suspects’ whereabouts.

    A passing motorist spotted Ellis and Bostic walking along a rural section of Interstate 80 on Wednesday, police said, and investigators followed a trail of muddy footprints and food wrappers and eventually caught up with the two.

    Bostic was taken to a prison in Stroudsburg, Pa., where he was to be arraigned via video Thursday. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer or when he would be returned to New York.

    Police used night-vision gear and infrared heat-sensing equipment to search for Ellis.
