Brooklyn   An Off-Duty Police Officer was fueling his vehicle at 914 Remsen Ave when 2 perps attempted to rob the gas station and an officer at gunpoint while having his car filled with gas. The Officer identified himself as an NYPD officer and ordered both suspects to drop the gun when one pointed the gun directly at the police officer.

The off-duty officer discharged his firearm striking the perpetrator in the lower rear torso. The suspect was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The second suspect fled eastbound on Ave D and being sought by NYPD.  The perps firearm was recovered at the scene. The off-duty officer was unharmed thankfully.
