Cop Injured By Falling Bike in Crown Heights
A police officer was seriously injured early Sunday morning when a bicycle was thrown from the 5th floor of a Crown Heights apartment building and landed on his head.
The incident occurred at around 2:00am near the corner of Albany and St. Marks Aves. The cops were responding to reports of gunfire, when they were pelted with various items thrown at them from a 5th floor balcony of a nearby building.
The injured officer was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he needed stitches to close the wound. Two other officers were injured when a fight broke out as they were arresting the suspected gunman.
A second person was taken into custody, but it wasn’t immediately clear if either was the person who tossed the bike.
