Shot NYPD officer recovering; says he wants to continue on force

By Luis Perez

The plainclothes Brooklyn cop allegedly shot and wounded by a fellow officer's husband told relatives he "wants to continue to do his job" yesterday, as prosecutors leveled charges against the couple.

Police Officer Andrew Suarez, 25, was alert and in stable condition at New York Methodist Hospital, a day after the Saturday shooting in which two bullets were fired into his unmarked car, one striking him in the upper back, police said. He is expected to recover fully.
