Location:   Bronx, NY   USA   Sun. Sep. 29, 2019
Summary: The shooting took place about 12:30 a.m. outside the Edenwald Houses in the Bronx near East 229th Street and Laconia Avenue, where the officer was patrolling with his partner. The area had seen an increase in gang activity and shootings.

Just after midnight, three police officers attempted to question a man behind the Edenwald complex, the police said. The man fled, and officers in the area pursued him on foot.

Officer Mulkeen and his partner were struggling with the man on the ground when Officer Mulkeen yelled: 'He's reaching for it! He's reaching for it!' according to body camera footage.

The subj., who it was later determined to possess a .32 revolver, somehow had gained control of Det. Mulkeen's own weapon and shot him three times. He was taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Five officers at the location fired at the subj. The subj, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The .32-caliber revolver was recovered.

=========================================================

For more than 36 hours after a New York City police officer was shot and killed while wrestling with an armed man in the Bronx, officials could not answer a crucial question: Who fired the fatal shots?

At first it appeared that the officer, Brian Mulkeen, had been shot with his own gun while grappling with the man, who was then killed by responding officers, the police said. The officer's weapon was fired five times, but a .32-caliber revolver found near the man had not discharged a single shot.

But on Monday, the police commissioner said Officer Mulkeen had retained control of his weapon and had fired five shots at the man. Officer Mulkeen, 33, was mortally wounded by his own partners, who according to police radio transmissions mistakenly believed they were being ambushed.

Within seconds, the officers who came to Officer Mulkeen's aid fired 10 rounds, killing him and the man with whom he was struggling, Antonio Lavance Williams. Mr. Williams, 27, never fired a shot
