The only type of defensive gun use case that the NY Times reports
In spite of his wound, the suspect, Daniel Arroyo, 22, of Hoe Avenue in Crotona Park East was reported in fair condition at Jacobi Medical Center, where he was under police guard. He was charged with attempted robbery, assault and weapons counts. The police said that his gun, a .380-caliber semiautomatic, was found near the officer's vehicle, cocked and loaded.
The officer, Kenneth O'Connor, 34, an 11-year veteran of the department, works in the 47th Precinct, where the shooting occurred.
Officer O'Connor had just left the Laconia Avenue station house and was headed home when Mr. Arroyo approached his Ford Explorer at East 223rd Street and Schieffelin Avenue in Williamsbridge about 12:20 a.m., according to the police. He then pointed his gun at the officer and demanded the car, the police said.
Officer O'Connor drew his off-duty weapon, a .38-caliber revolver, and fired once, the police said, striking Mr. Arroyo in the face. Mr. Arroyo dropped his gun and ran a block to Eastchester Road while Officer O'Connor called the police on his cellphone, the police said. Officers arrested Mr. Arroyo a short time later. . . . .
