Williams allegedlyopened fire insidethe borough’s 41st Precinct station house around 8 a.m., wounding a lieutenant before heran out of bulletsand gave up with a whimper, sources and authorities said.
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said in a press briefing that he is “confident” that Williams is also behind a Saturday-nightambush on two copssitting in a parked department vehicle in the same neighborhood.
In that attack, a bullet struck one cop in the chin, narrowly missing his carotid artery.
In the same press briefing at Lincoln Hospital, Shea confirmed that the department is interviewing a woman who was “present in the general area” of the 41st Precinct cop shop, but declined to reveal more.
