Antonio Lavance Williams NYPD Cop Brian Mulkeen Killer

Officer Brian Mulkeen and two other members of the Bronx Borough Anti-Crime Unit were patrolling the Edenwald Houses when they got out of their police vehicle at 229th Drive North near Laconia Ave. to question the suspect about 12:30 a.m., NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said.

“The man fled and a foot pursuit ensued,” Monahan said at an early morning press conference at Jacobi Medical Center. “As Officer Brian Mulkeen and his partner attempted to apprehend the man, a violent struggle on the ground began.”

Mulkeen tackled the 6-foot 270-pound suspect. Mulkeen is 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, sources said.

“He’s reaching for it — he’s reaching for it,” Mulkeen yelled out as he tussled with the gunman, police body-worn cameras revealed.

The suspect managed to shoot Mulkeen three times with the cop’s own gun as they struggled against each other, sources said. Mulkeen’s gun went off five times during the clash.

Five shots rang out and Mulkeen was struck three times. He was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx where he was pronounced dead. The New York Daily News reported that Williams’ gun was not fired and police believe the man took and used Mulkeen’s own weapon in the killing.

Moments after his gun went off, five officers shot the 27-year-old suspect, killing him. Cops are investigating whether any of their bullets inadvertently hit Mulkeen.
