    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A New York City police officer has died following a shooting in Brooklyn.

    Investigators said Officer Peter Figoski, 47, was shot*in the face while responding to a break-in around 2:15 a.m. Monday at a basement apartment on Pine Street in Cypress Hills.

    Police said Figoski’s partner, Glenn Estrada, chased the alleged gunman, identified as 27-year-old Lamont Pride, and arrested him. A second suspect is at large.

    Police said Pride has five unsealed prior*arrests including several for drug possession and sale. He was wanted on an outstanding warrant for aggravated assault in North Carolina.

    The two suspects were apparently hiding in a side room as the officers arrived and were trying to flee when the shooting happened.

    Officials said Figoski*was shot*in the cheek. The bullet traveled to the back of his neck and severed his spinal cord. Figoski*was rushed*to Jamaica Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:17 a.m.

    Estrada sustained a shoulder injury.

    The 25-year-old tenant of the basement apartment said Pride and the other suspect knocked on his door and claimed to be police officers before demanding money and jewelry. Police said the suspects stole a watch and $770 cash.

    Police said the tenant was knocked*down and struck in the head with a firearm. He is being treated*at Brookedale hospital for head injuries.

    A 9mm Ruger*semi-automatic pistol was recovered under a parked car on Chestnut Street, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

    “It appears that one round had been discharged from the weapon,” Kelly said in a statement.

    Figoski, a 22-year veteran of the force and father of four, had over 200 arrests. He was awarded 12 medals, including eight for exceptional police duty.

    Rest In Peace my Brother. May God grant you eternal rest and may He also look over your family and grant them peace now, in their most extreme moment of sorrow.

    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.
