October 25, 2012

Ivan Marcano, was shot October 24, 2012 responding to a crime while off-duty. Officer Marcano was on Harrison Avenue in the Bronx when he observed a crime in progress. During an exchange of gunfire, Police Officer Marcano was hit but he did fire his weapon and he struck one of the perpetrators, killing him. The other suspect fled.
Officer Marcano joined the Police Department back in 2007 and is the 12th NYPD officer who has been shot this year and the second officer we’ve seen shot this week. Fortunately, the news did not end tragically, but as we saw on Tuesday with the murder of Nassau County Police Officer Arthur Lopez and last year with the murder of Police Officer Peter Figoski, these incidents sometimes really do end where the police officer does not go home to his family.
Police Officer Marcano was protecting our city and putting his life on the line, just as thousands of officers do every day. New York City Police Officers put their life in danger every day so the city can be safe for you and me.
