NYPD girlfriend of Bronx ‘cop-shooter’ Robert Williams taken into custody

The NYPD-employed girlfriend of accused Bronx cop shooter Robert Williams is in police custody, law-enforcement sources said Sunday.

Liza Valdez, a probationary communications technician with the department, is being grilled by police in regard to her boyfriend’s alleged 12-hour rampage, sources told The Post.

Williams allegedly opened fire inside the borough’s 41st Precinct station house around 8 a.m., wounding a lieutenant before he ran out of bullets and 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-night ambush on two cops sitting 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.

“We are speaking to a woman,” said Shea. “I would not describe her as a suspect.”
