"Friendly fire aside, it's because of the actions of the suspect that Simonsen is dead", the police commissioner said.

The officers opened fire on the suspect, and as they backed out of the store, they were struck by bullets from cops outside, O'Neill said.

The mayor said that he and the commissioner had told Simonsen's family that "the New York City Police Department will be there for them, the people of New York City will be there for them".

The suspect, described by O'Neill as a 27-year-old career criminal, was shot multiple times and is listed as stable, O'Neill said.

Sgt. Matthew Gorman was shot in the leg, O'Neill said.

In a grim rite, officers from across the New York City Police Department stood and saluted Tuesday night outside Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in a cold drizzle as the remains of a detective, believed to have been caught in the crosshairs of fellow law enforcement, were driven past in an ambulance.

"No sirens, guys", a dispatcher warns. It happened as other officers were also arriving on the scene. Commissioner O'Neill says they looked through the windows of the store. The Associated Press said the doors of the store were blown out by the gunfire and glass fragments littered the sidewalk.

They entered the store and shot at the suspect, who was "pointing at them what appeared to be a handgun", O'Neill said, later adding that "an imitation firearm" had been recovered at the scene.

'We lost a very good man, ' Mayor Bill de Blasio said of the hero detective. "His mom, who has suffered so much".

Simonsen, who was assigned to the 102 Precinct, leaves behind a wife and two children. When they didn't see anyone inside they went into the store.
