NYPD cop shoots man who pulled gun on her partners

Officer Tara Hayes responded quickly to the threat

New York Post

NEW YORK — A gutsy cop saved the lives of her two partners yesterday when she shot and killed a psycho robbery suspect who had pulled a gun on the officers as they sat in an unmarked cruiser in Brooklyn, police said.

Michael Romero, 32 - hiding a second gun, ammo and two stolen wallets stuffed with cash - went after the plainclothes officers at around 2:15 p.m. after they tried to question him about a string of robberies in Sunset Park, including the mugging of a cop's mother.
