NYC: See the moment an off-duty cop tackles a Queens shooter

New video shows the moment an off-duty NYPD officer springs into action to tackle an accused shooter — heroics that earned the cop a nod from Commissioner Dermot Shea Tuesday.

“The moment after a man shot & killed a deli worker, off-duty NYPD Officer Maharaj, with out regard for his own safety, tackled the shooter, disarmed him & held him for responding cops,” the top cop tweeted, along with a clip showing the Finest launch to the rescue after Steven Cohen, 63, allegedly shot to death Mohmediyan Tarwala, 26, inside a Crossbay Boulevard convenience store around 6 p.m. Monday.
