Police say a New York City officer was shot and wounded in Brooklyn by a gunman who later committed suicide.

Officers responded to the apartment on Ridgewood Avenue in Cypress Hills around 5 p.m. This is an example of the fact that our officers go into any situation and how it might turn on a moments notice.

Police sources say the officer was shot four times in the chest and once in the arm.

A video feed from a television news helicopter showed armed police officers with their guns drawn taking cover, first behind an ambulance and then behind an armored vehicle outside a home.

Eric Phillips, spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio, said the mayor was on his way to Jamaica Hospital Center.

The gunman has only been identified as a 29-year-old man. She said in the 911 call her son was unarmed.

In addition to the weapons, the shooter had a good amount of pills and had recently gotten a new BMW, which has raised questions about how he funded the vehicle and what he was doing with the medication, police said.

"Thank goodness, the officer is gonna be fine", the police commissioner said.

Nguyen and his partner split up after being told by the mother that Sookdeo may try to flee through a back door of the home, police officials said. "Our officer is going to come through it, he's a fearless young man, he's going to come through it".

Nguyen of the 75th Precinct has been on the force for just over two years.

"He had a great attitude".
