Three United States Marshals attempted to bring in a suspect from a home in the Bronx neighborhood of rabidly Democrat New York City. After an explosive gun battle, two of the federal agents were rushed to the hospital. New York city is just like all the other Democrat strongholds that frown on law and order.
Marshals move in on Bronx home
An early morning gun battle left two U.S. marshals injured Friday when they tried to apprehend a suspect in Bronx, New York.
According to police, around 5:30 a.m. shots were fired on Ely Avenue near the intersection with Edenwald Avenue.
When the shooting stopped, the marshals were rushed to nearby Jacobi Hospital “for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.”
Officials report that both officers are in stable condition. One was shot in the elbow and thigh, the other was hit in the leg.
The suspect, Andre Sterling, had been armed with a 9 mm Glock handgun which was recovered at the scene. He wasn’t nearly as good a shot as the Marshals.
The police department relates that he was “shot and killed on-site.” A “second suspect” was involved in the shootout. He was also taken to the hospital for treatment.
Wanted for shooting a trooper
Three marshals were sent in because Sterling was wanted for allegedly opening fire on a 28-year-old Massachusetts State Trooper on November 20.
His arrest warrant listed “multiple charges including armed assault with intent to murder and possession of a firearm.” The trooper took a round through his right hand which then struck his body armor.
Before the Marshals started looking for him, Sterling had two bonus warrants in Massachusetts “on charges including identity fraud and assault and battery on a police officer.” He wasn’t real welcome in Wyoming either.
He was wanted there on narcotics charges which have become a moot point which the taxpayers won’t have to prosecute.
The trio of federal marshals got a tip that their 35-year-old suspect was holed up in a Bronx home in the Wakefield section
As soon as they entered the dwelling, the suspect started blasting. It isn’t clear at this time if the second occupant of the home was also shooting at the agents or was caught in the crossfire.
