On Sunday morning, chaos broke out at a Bronx police precinct as a lone gunman entered the building and began shooting. According to The New York Post, the gunman walked into a station house located on Longwood Avenue and immediately opened fire, wounding an NYPD lieutenant in the arm.
According to New York City council speaker Corey Johnson, the officer wounded in Sunday's attack has since been hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect, Robert Williams, has been taken into custody, per The New York Post. Police are investigating whether this gunman may be the same man responsible for another shooting, one which took place on Saturday night in the Bronx -- an act of violence which also targeted local law enforcement officers.
"Horrified by the multiple attacks on @NYPD officers in the Bronx. NY's law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. These attacks are heinous. Those responsible will be brought to justice & held accountable to the fullest extent of the law."
