NYPD alerted of ‘credible’ threat toward officers after last week’s ‘assassination attempt’

first_imgtillsonburg/iStock(NEW YORK) — The New York City Police Department is warning officers to be “vigilant and alert” following increased “credible” threats toward its officers.Officials are advising all officers to have a heightened awareness “in light of the events that transpired over the past weekend in the Bronx.”Officials sent a department-wide email stressing there are “no specific threats against the department,” but said desk officers must ensure that every station house security post is assigned and staffed at all times.Law enforcement sources tell ABC News that federal authorities notified the NYPD that they took an alleged MS-13 member in custody that they believe had made threats against police officers in the Bronx and in other parts of the city.NYPD had no comment, other than to say they have no one in custody in connection to any threats.The NYPD security note comes on the heels of a violent weekend that saw multiple officers targeted in what the city called a “premeditated assassination attempt,” allegedly by the same person.Police said 45-year-old Robert Williams walked up to a marked police van, asked for directions, and then opened fire on the evening of Feb. 8. Officer Paul Stroffolino, who was struck by a bullet in the neck and chin during the incident, was taken to a local hospital by his partner after putting the car into drive once he saw the suspect’s gun.Around 8 a.m. the following morning, Williams allegedly walked into the 41st Precinct, not too far the previous night’s police shooting, and opened fire at officers and a civilian employee, hitting Lt. Jose Gautreaux in the arm, according to the police.Officers arrested Williams after he ran out of bullets, police said. He now faces 14 attempted murder charges.Williams will be in court again on Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET.“It’s only by the grace of God and the heroic actions of those inside the building that took [the suspect] into custody that we are not talking about police officers murdered inside a New York City Police precinct,” NYPD Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said during a press conference.Both Gautreaux and Stroffolino have been released from the hospital.“It was a quiet Sunday morning when bullets started flying inside the 41st Precinct. Our officers handled it with heroism and extraordinary skill, showing the true caliber of the men and women who serve in the NYPD,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday. “Thank God our officers are alive … This was a premeditated assassination attempt against New York’s Finest. It was also an attack on ALL New Yorkers and everything we believe in.”Following last weekend’s shootings, the Sergeants Benevolent Association, without providing evidence, blamed de Blasio for the attacks and what they said was an increase in negative public sentiment toward law enforcement officers.“Mayor DeBlasio [sic], the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you,” the SBA tweeted. “We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you. NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you. This isn’t over, Game on!”Freddi Goldstein, a spokeswoman for de Blasio, called the statement from the SBA “absolutely reprehensible.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Fire danger, red flag warnings persist in parts of western US

first_imgABC NewsBY: DANIEL MANZO, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Critical fire danger, driven by the combination of strong winds, hot temperatures, and dry vegetation will persist this weekend in parts of the western U.S.In Arizona, the Bighorn Fire in the Coronado National Forest grew to at least 8,950 acres on Friday with 10% containment. There were a couple of other smaller fires reported on Friday in Southern California and Colorado.Relative humidity values will likely fall as low as 5% in the region Saturday afternoon. Winds gust in parts of northern Arizona could reach 50 mph, especially near Flagstaff. Additionally, blowing dust will be an issue in that region as well.Some dry thunderstorms will also be possible along the borders of New Mexico and Colorado, as well as Utah Saturday. This could mean chances for lightning, which could spark other fires.Other parts of the region will be quite hot Saturday, with temperatures in the triple digits expected for the southern half of Arizona.The fire weather threat will persist for parts of the region again on Sunday before conditions improve next week.Meanwhile on the East Coast, a combination of a couple of different weather systems will bring a lingering flood threat through the upcoming week.A flash flood watch has been issued for parts of Florida and Georgia Saturday. Thunderstorms with heavy rain are currently affecting parts of the Southeast, from Tampa, to the North Carolina and Virginia border.The storms are firing up along the stalled frontal boundary that is hugging the immediate Southeast coastline. The stationary front will not move much this weekend, and therefore storms will continue to develop in this region, and will bring rounds of heavy rain that could cause some flooding.A new low pressure will develop in the Appalachians on Sunday and bring heavy rainfall to parts of West Virginia, Virginia and Ohio.Rounds of unsettled weather, with gusty thunderstorms and heavy rain are in the forecast, where rainfall could be locally enhanced along the North and South Carolina coastline. Rounds of heavy rain will also be possible in the Appalachians from West Virginia to South Carolina.Current forecasts are showing over 6 inches of rain will be possible in parts of the Carolinas through the middle of the week, which could result in flash flooding.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
