BROOKLYN — The brute accused of gunning down hero NYPD cop Peter Figoski was in court yesterday, watching the video statements he made to investigators in the hours after the fatal shooting - including one where he pantomimed an elaborate fall he claimed caused the gun to go off.

Lamont Pride, 28, will stand trial on first-degree murder charges for the Dec. 12, 2011, murder.
