This is what cops do. It's a shame that they have become vilified by asshole Democrats and BLM.
NY Post reports an off-duty NYPD cop tackled an alleged shooter outside a Queens deli on Monday night — holding the man until on-duty police arrived, police said.
The officer, who was inside a deli at 137-02 Cross Bay Boulevard in Jamaica, sprung to action when a 63-year-old man allegedly shot a customer there at about 6:15 p.m., authorities said.
The NYPD identified the hero cop as Jason Maharaj from the 77 Precinct.
The suspect, who is believed to be homeless, was initially causing a commotion inside the deli before being escorted out, sources said.
He returned shortly after and fired a gun into the store, striking a 26-year-old patron, sources said.
