MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (AP) – New York City police say a bystander has died after he was accidentally shot by a plainclothes officer who also shot an armed suspect three times after an undercover gun buy went bad.
Police say 61-year-old Felix Kumi of Mount Vernon died early Saturday.
Authorities say Kumi was shot Friday afternoon after a man pulled a gun on an undercover NYPD officer during a probe into the sale of illegal firearms.
The wounded suspect was shot three times and hospitalized with charges pending. The 37-year-old’s name was not released.
Police say a second suspect, 28-year-old Jeffrey Aristy of the Bronx, has been arrested on drugs and weapons charges. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
