Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the killing "the latest in a troubling series of attacks on police officers over the past two years". In an unprovoked attack, Alexander Bonds approached the vehicle and shot her in the head.

A bystander was struck by a bullet in that encounter and is in stable condition, Police Commissioner James O'Neill said.

A police officer stands near the site where Officer Miosotis Familia was killed. She later died at St. Barnabas Hospital. Some escorted her body to the medical examiner's office.

After initially testing the armor on a few cars, Mayor Bill de Blasio in January announced a $10 million program to retrofit the entire fleet of 3,800 marked and unmarked patrol cars.

"She was the sweetest person you ever want to meet", Ritter said. Some are now questioning that decision, especially since such mobile command posts, which are often planted in neighborhoods for weeks, might actually be more vulnerable. Bonds was on parole for robbery. In 2014, a man shot and killed two officers sitting in a police vehicle before killing himself. The arrest record appeared to be sealed, and further information about how the case was resolved was not available.

He was arrested in Queens in 2001 for assaulting a police officer, officials said.

"Don't think every brother, cousin, uncle you got that get killed in jail is because of a Blood or Crip or Latin King killing them". Bonds also wrapped political-sounding words about police misconduct around threats posted to social media. We gonna do something.

At another point, Bonds alluded to encountering officers and said: "I'm not hesitating".

A 12-year NYPD veteran, Familia came to police work later than most on a force, where the average recruit is 26 years old. Bonds was black; Familia was black and Hispanic. "Keep her family in your prayers". She apparently had no previous contact with Bonds. Wilcox said the shooting was being characterized as an assassination. After she was shot, the video then shows a flood of officers moving into the neighborhood to help the fallen officer. He didn't get off a shot, authorities said.

Answer the Call and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which support the families of city first responders killed in the line of duty, are accepting donations for Familia's three children.

When he heard that she had been shot, he said, "My heart dropped".

NY has long grappled with ways of dealing with the seriously mentally ill, with limited success and angry rebukes from the courts for mishandling the situation.
