A 22-year NYPD veteran responding to a break-in died hours after being shot in the face by a “career criminal” wielding an illegal semi-automatic weapon, police and Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday.
Peter Figoski, 47, died at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center at about 7:15 a.m. — some five hours after the shooting in Brooklyn, authorities said.
Figoski was shot when he and his partner, Glenn Estrada, responded as backup to a 911 call about a robbery at a basement apartment in East New York.
