Second NYPD Cop Dies Following Shooting That Killed Partner & Suspected Gunman

A New York police officer died on Tuesday, days after Friday’s shooting that killed his partner and the suspected gunman.

NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell announced the death of officer Wilbert Mora, 27. Mora was left seriously injured after suspect Lashawn McNeil, 47, allegedly shot him and officer Jason Rivera, 22, during a domestic disturbance in Harlem.

A third police officer reportedly shot McNeil in his head and arm, leading to his death on Monday. At the time, Mora remained hospitalized in grave condition.

McNeil, who is from Baltimore, Maryland, reportedly carried out Friday’s shooting with a Glock .45 handgun which was illegally modified with a high-capacity magazine. The gun was reportedly stolen in Baltimore in 2017.

McNeil was on probation for a 2003 drug conviction at the time of the deadly shooting.

Sources told the New York Post that McNeil was pronounced brain dead following the shooting, which occurred after McNeil’s mother called the police amid a domestic dispute.
