New surveillance footage shows the moments a gunman approached a parked NYPD command vehicle before opening fire at an officer early Wednesday.
Alexander Bonds, 34, walked up to the passenger side of the parked police vehicle on E. 183rd St and Creston Ave. in the Bronx and fired one gunshot, video captured by a nearby store shows.
Officer Miosotis Familia, assigned to the 46th precinct, was sitting in the passenger seat writing in her memo book before being fatally shot in the head after midnight, police said.
