Off-duty MTA Bridges and Tunnels cop beaten in road rage incident, fires nine shots at attackers

Thursday, June 17th 2010,

 

"An off-duty MTA Bridges and Tunnels cop shot at a group of attackers - striking one - during an early-morning road rage beatdown in the Bronx on Wednesday, cops said.

 

Edward Aiken, 38, was on his way to his job on Randalls Island, exiting from the southbound Major Deegan Expressway about 5:20 a.m., when he was rear-ended by another car, causing his car to hit a guardrail, police and MTA officials said.

 

The stunned special operations officer got out to confront the other driver, and the two began to fight, cops said.

 

"Other individuals got out of the car and began to assault the officer," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. "He was on the ground. He was being beaten."

 

That's when the roughed-up Aiken pulled out his pistol and pumped nine rounds toward his attackers - striking one and sending the others scurrying from the highway, police said.

 

One suspect was taken into custody when he walked into Harlem Hospital with a gunshot wound, Kelly said.

 

Three people were being held at the 44th Precinct stationhouse, sources said.

 

None of the four was charged, cops said Wednesday night."

Is it even legal to use your gun while off duty?

 

Yes it is, even off duty, a Police officer in New York State is supposed to take action if he/she is a witness to a crime. B&T officers are cops anywhere they go in New York State.

Thanks.

 

As an act of self-defence, or when physically threatened, such as this case, it is justified.

 

No I agree, just curious because isn't it illegal to have a gun in NYC? What if a regular person was in the same predicament?

Actually, there are many agencies within NYC that do not carry firearms yet are considered "police" and have peace officer status. They are authorized to use deadly physical force but do not carry firearms. Some of these agencies are DHS police, Department of Juvenile Justice Police, NYC Hospital Police, some Park Rangers, HRA Police, DCAS Police, TLC Inspectors, ACS Police, Library Police, and I believe Firefighters have unarmed peace officer status.

I believe I did see a DCAS officer with a firearm the last time I went into the Tweed courthouse (DOE HQ).

Well true indeed, but when I'm referring to the "gunless cop" thing, I'm talking about the regular guys and the MTA B&T cops.
