NYC: Off-duty NYPD cop shoots man who attempted to carjack him in Brooklyn

An off-duty NYPD cop shot a gunman who fired at him first during what appeared to be an attempted carjacking early Wednesday, authorities said.

The cop had just left work and gotten inside his car at the corner of East 87th Street and Foster Avenue in Canarsie around 2 a.m. when a 28-year-old man tapped on his driver’s side window with a gun, NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said at a morning press conference.

The officer pulled to the side and got out of the car — at which time the gunman fired once in his direction, but did not strike him, according to Harrison.
