Shoot-Out In New York Subway Station As Hero Cop Is Hit In Arm – But Still Manages To Gun Down Fleeing Suspect

A New York detective was shot in the arm by the suspect he was chasing but still managed to shoot and kill his target.

Michael McBride, 52, was being chased by Detective Kevin Herlihy in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan on Tuesday when he met his death.

McBride was suspected of shooting his girlfriend’s 21-year-old daughter, who remains in critical condition.

This story travelled from the Far Rockaways neighborhood of Queens, where the young woman was shot, to the top of Manhattan.

Detectives in the violent offenders were watching McBride as he travelled cross-borough, and they alerted Manhattan police.

Mr Herlihy was followed him down 145th Street and into the St. Nicholas Avenue subway stop, which services the A,B,C, and D lines.

Once in the subway station, McBride shot at Mr Herlihy, and while the detective only sustained a wound to his left forearm, McBride was shot multiple times and died.

Police commissioner Ray Kelly was at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital when Mr Herlihy was receiving treatment, and he praised the detective’s actions.

‘He not only survived but was able to stop his assailant from shooting anyone else,’ Mr Kelly told NBC New York.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg also visited the detective’s hospital room, saying it was the third shooting of a police officer in the city in the past two months.


‘The three shooters have at least one thing in common and that is that they possessed their guns illegally, and that is true for nearly every shooting that occurs in our city.


He also took the opportunity to talk about his effort to rid New York of illegal guns- an issue he has long advocated for through his group Mayors Against Illegal Guns. 


‘As long as federal laws allow guns to flow onto our streets, criminals will be able to get them and police officers will be in danger.’
