The New York Police commissioner called it an "unprovoked attacked", where the 48-aged Miosotis Familia, a 12-year experienced officer was shot. The victim taken to the St. Barnabas Hospital, is now declared dead.

The NYPD Commissioner O'Neill announced Miosotis' death through the called unprovoked attack in a tweet.

Reports say the officer was sitting in a marked NYPD command vehicle near the corner of East 183 Street and Creston Avenue, at around 12:30 in the Wednesday morning and a gunman shot her through the window.

Surveillance footage has shown the suspected 34-year-old shooter Alexander Bonds marching toward the command post. The suspect is also shot fatally while a bystander is hospitalized with a bullet wound, police said.
