    The shot officer, who has 5 years on the job, worked in the anti-crime unit of PSA no. 5, a command that polices New York City Public Housing developments in East Harlem and Harlem, according to sources.

    Officer Randolph Holder, 33, a five-year veteran working in Police Service Area 5, took a bullet to the forehead at 8:45 p.m. as he and other cops pursued the perp, who was riding a bicycle at E. 120th St. and FDR Drive, a high-ranking police source said.

    [....]

    After Randolph was shot, cops found a 32-year-old man, believed to be involved in the shooting, suffering from a bullet wound to the leg at E. 125th St., the sources said. He was taken into custody.

    This is why stop and frisk should not be stopped. This guy may have been off the streets if Deblasio wasn't backing down. He is reversing everything that Bloomberg has done. Jmo.

    Officer Randolph Holder was 33-years-old


    His father and his grandfather were both police officers in Guyana, and Holder joined the NYPD after he moved here.

    Holder's father, also called Randolph, said that his son had 'always wanted to be a cop, just like his dad'.

    He paid tribute to a 'fun-loving, caring young man, always with a smile on his face',


    His father said and that he had dated Malika Clarke-Yarde, 33, since they were both 14 and recently split although they remained close with him helping her raise her child although he was not the father.

    Sounds like Randolph was a kind person and a decent human being -- the kind of police officer we need ! Smdh.


    May Officer Holder rest gently , and my condolences to his grieving loved ones !

    Suspect in Fatal Shooting of New York Officer Was on the Run for Weeks, Officials Say

    [snipped]

    The police had gone looking for Tyrone Howard at least 10 times since Sept. 1, when, investigators believe, he rode up to a rival just after midnight and shot him. But 10 times he eluded them.

    [....]

    Mr. Howard, 30, was charged with first-degree murder and robbery. At a packed arraignment in Lower Manhattan late Wednesday night, a judge ordered that Mr. Howard be held in jail without bail. Well over 100 police officers attended the hearing, as did members of Officer Holder’s family. At times people shouted obscenities at the defendant.

    [....]

    Indeed, one of the ways Mr. Howard knew the officer approaching him on a darkened pathway of F.D.R. Drive — besides by the silver shield dangling from his neck — was that they had encountered each other before, the police said. Mr. Howard had 23 arrests as an adult, including one in connection with a shootout in June 2009 on a basketball court in the East River Houses that wounded two bystanders: an 11-year-old boy and a 77-year-old man. (The case did not go forward, officials said, because prosecutors were unable to present any witnesses who could identify Mr. Howard.)

    [....]

    Five years into a promising police career, including six commendations, Officer Holder, an immigrant from Guyana, had begun telling relatives of his growing sense of the dangers of the job he loved.

    I'm not saying this is worse because he was an immigrant, but think about coming to a new country and all the work and effort behind that... he lived in America intentionally just as he was intentionally a police officer and it adds another element of heartbreak.

    RIP Officer Holder.

    I agree, bluesneakers. I always think the same thing when someone who came here to live from another country is murdered. They often come to make a better life for themselves and their families. Officer Holder repaid his chosen country for the freedoms he was given by becoming a public servant, which sadly cost him his life.
