NYPD Officer Randolph Holder

*Another NYC cop has been killed.

Randolph Holder, a New York City Police Department Housing Officer, was fatally shot in the head while pursuing a suspected armed robber on Tuesday night.

Holder was the fourth NYPD officer murdered while working in the past 11 months.

Holder, a 33-year-old immigrant from Guyana, was a five-year veteran of the NYPD and third-generation officer, reports Newsweek.

Here’s what Police Commissioner William Bratton told reporters during a press conference late Tuesday night.

“Holder did what every other officer in the NYPD does when the call comes—he ran toward danger. It was the last time he will respond to that call.”

Around 8:30 p.m. ET, Holder and his partners responded to calls about a gunshot in the city’s East Harlem neighborhood. Witnesses reported that several men fled along a footpath on the Franklin D. Roosevelt East River Drive, Bratton said. A male victim also told officers that his bike had been stolen at gunpoint by one of the fleeing individuals.

Holder and another officer caught up to a male suspect and exchanged gunfire, police said. Holder was shot in the head, and later died just before 10:30 p.m. at Harlem Hospital, Bratton said. The suspect, whose name has not been released, fled the scene, but was apprehended by other officers. He sustained gunshot wounds to his leg and was taken into custody and transported to Cornell Medical Center.

  1. This is what happens when cops are too busy trying to make sure they don’t do anything to jeopardize their jobs or freedom when dealing with street scum. Asking questions and shooting later = dead cop. RIP Officer Holder.

  2. Stop it Kates1221, this is unfortunate and terrible. May the officer rest in peace..my prayers go out to his family. This incident has nothing to do with unarmed men and women dying in police custody. The murderer was shot at by the way and injured, he was able to turn around and shoot the officer in the head, it did not happen while our beloved officer was having a conversation it happened during a shoot out and I wish that murderer was shot in the head instead because he was armed and dangerous beyond a doubt..so don’t dare use this unfortunate event to be ignorant…take it for what it is.

  3. RIP OFFICER RANDOLPH HOLDER AND THE HOLDER FAMILY YOU HAVE OUR DEEPEST CONDOLENCES. AND TO KITTY ABOVE BEAUTIFULLY SAID!
