    Police Officer Shot in Brooklyn

    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A police officer who confronted a man smoking marijuana in front of a beauty parlor was shot Tuesday evening but was expected to survive, police said.

    The officer was shot by the man in his right ankle at around 7:15 p.m. in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, police said.

    The incident took place at Dean Street and Flatbush Avenue. Police offiers Rory Mangra (pictured), who was in uniform, and Erik Merizalde were on patrol in an unmarked police car when they spotted the suspect smoking what they believed to be a marijuana cigarette, police said.

    As Mangra exited the vehicle, the suspect fled eastbound down Dean Street toward Flatbush Avenue. Mangra gave chase as Merizalde drove the police car to block the suspect, near the corner of Flatbush. A struggle ensued, and the suspect pulled a .22 caliber pistol from his waistband and shot Mangra in the ankle, police said.

    The shooter, 23-year-old Kingsley Newland of South 10th Street in Brooklyn, was caught and was in custody, police said. The .22 caliber gun was recovered and is pictured above in a photo provided by the NYPD.

    Officer Mangra was being treated at New York Methodist Hospital, where he was in stable condition.

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg and police Commissioner Raymond Kelly went to the hospital Tuesday night. Kelly said Newland's gun jammed after the first shot, preventing him from firing another.

    Kelly also said Newland was a well-known member of the Bloods street gang, and has several prior arrests for drugs and weapons.

    Earlier this month, two unarmed volunteer police officers were shot dead by a gunman they followed in Manhattan after he had shot a restaurant bartender. Full-time New York Police Department officers later shot and killed the gunman.

    Hope he recovers quickly.

    Be safe.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
