How NYPD Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo Was Killed Today

New York – Two NYPD police sergeants were shot during a gunfight today. Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo died from his wounds.

At around 3 p.m. today a man forced himself into a woman’s apartment on Noble Ave. in the Bronx. Two Sergeants were close by and responded to the home invasion. The officers spotted the suspect vehicle, a red colored Jeep Grand Cherokee, near the scene and approached the vehicle.

As the two Sergeants approached the suspect, he opened fire on them with a .45 caliber pistol. The officers returned fire, killing the suspect while he was still inside of his Jeep.

The home invasion suspect was later identified as 35-year-old Manuel Rosales. Rosales was carrying multiple guns and dozens of rounds were exchanged in the gunfight. 41-year-old NYPD Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo was shot in the chest and head, he was taken to the Jacobi Medical Center where he died from his wounds.

Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo leaves behind a wife and 2 young children. He was a 19-year veteran of the NYPD

The other Sergeant has been identified as 31-year-old Emmanuel Kwo who is a 9-year veteran of the NYPD. He was struck in the leg and is expected to be alright.

Rosales, who has over 17 arrests in Suffolk county, was killed by officers.

Governor Andre Cuomo released this statement:

“Every day, the brave men and women of law enforcement selflessly serve our communities to keep the rest of us safe. Today, a sergeant in the New York City Police Department has made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, and another officer is undergoing treatment. My deepest sympathies are with the families of the officers involved in today’s tragedy in the Bronx, and with Commissioner O’Neill and the NYPD as they cope with the loss of one of their own.”

    I wonder who the dirtbag wanted to see win the election? Any doubts? Democrats have emboldened he thugs and placed a giant target on cops.

    • Nicholas Boake

      The gestapo should pay that little bitch a nifty visit. Maybe we can arrange for some concentration camps to be built?

      • Rhonda Mitchell

        We already have them in the form of prisons…the problem is nobody keeps the criminals where they need to be or executes them for murdering people.

    • Nathan L Goins

      Are you a fucking moron? You all are what is wrong with this election year. IDIOTS!!!

      • Sick Of It All

        How do you feel now? I honestly feel bad for anybody of color in this country. Not because Trump is our soon to be president. But for the mentality his winning has brought on. Muslims, Hispanics, and of course AA are all going to be targets, thanks to the media.

    Wonder if he’s an illegal. RIP

    Rosales, who has over 17 catch-and-release in Suffolk County . . . .

      What happened to that 3 strikes , you’re out they promised us. If that was being utilized, this thug would have been in jail after his third offense, not out killing our officers after 17. Criminals are constantly rewarded for bad behavior.

      • Teresa F

        President Bill Clinton signed that into law in 1994. I too wonder how he’s olds arrested 17 times are able to still walk the streets. These politicians never follow through with what they say even after it becomes a law let alone what they promise on the campaign trail. R.I.P to this brave brother in blue. I thank all of our law enforcement officers for their service.

        • Dorothy Scanlon

          Politicians don’t follow through even when promises become law because they’re too busy conspiring and breaking the laws themselves. Self serving Hypocrites all of them. My prayers are with the families of these two officers and all serving in Law Enforcement. Thank you all for your service. RIP Sgt. Tuozzolo your watch has ended. God Bless you and the loved ones you leave behind.

  • Greg Osborn

    Why oh why do w elect a man w 17 arrests continue to walk the streets. Ugh

    • vanillasteve

      I remember being attacked by 5 guys in high school. They mad a big deal about arresting the guys and identifying them etc….The NEXT day they were back at school like nothing happened. I learned never again to trust “the system”.

  • Nicholas Boake

    Glad the pig dog who killed this officer is dead.

  • pooh_bear77

    This is so heartbreaking! Yet another tragic loss.. My thoughts and prayers are with these officer’s, their families and friends as well as their brothers and sisters in blue!

    A travesty of immeasurable proportions! How was this oxygen thief wandering the streets with 17 prior arrests? I agree with the comment below that Democratic leaders have emboldened the thugs and endangered our police officers.

    17 arrests,loaded down with weapons, and a home invasion with the woman at home. Im sure he meant no harm, was just “getting his”, had been wronged by a privileged white society, and been treated unfairly by racist cops for all 17 arrests that eventually ended with his unjust “murder” by police. NO, he was a grown man that made choices in his life to participate in criminal behavior, got increasingly violent and dangerous, and then consequences took place. There are many, many people of all races raised in good, bad, and ugly circumstance that CHOOSE not to engage in these behaviors and lead law abiding, gainfully employed lives. Some of them actually seize any opportunity they find to further their education, put the hours and the WORK in, and become very successful, well adjusted, happy people that would not dream of violating other people’s rights or safety. Your life (and death at times)is nobody’s fault but your own. Stop blaming everyone else for your failure to act like a decent human being.

    I was one of those people born into less than ideal circumstances to a 13 year old foster child whose mother was in prison. I was placed for adoption and stayed in foster care during the first months of my life. I was then adopted into a family with a difficult natured hateful, totally illiterate (but hardworking) father that never made over $7.00 an hour in his life. He died after 13 years of debilitating heart failure, kidney failure, a brain aneurysm, gangrene, and other issues in 2000 ( continuously worked from age 16 to 67 without complaining or applying for any Disability or social programs)after raising his family, buying two homes, paying bills on time, paying for food, vehicles, clothes, and seeing his fiercely independent daughter complete her Masters degree and start her professsional life. The child they adopted from a cardboard box in an adoption “show” has worked since the age of 17, worked her way through college and grad school and been a professional for now 20 years. I did not let my circumstances define me. I look back at my dad’s life and I KNOW he didnt feel like working and wasnt able to BUT he did and he taught me to do the same. Now folks apply for Disability for a stumped toe at age 20. Dad was one of 12 kids raised poor on a farm. Of course…..we are white so we were privileged beyond words. Lol. Sing that song to someone else,folks.

    My prayers are with the loved ones of the true victims in this situation ….the Police.

    • Mary Rae

      Of course, all white prople are born with a silver spoon in their mouth. I just saw on the news that the BLM thugs were chanting “CPD, how many women and children did you kill today ?” The last I saw on our national news was 17 killed in Chicago, women and children included, but not by the CPD, but by the ones causing those murders in their own communities.

  • Kenyan Mocker

    Seems the results of Obama RACE CZAR Sharpton and the goons he inspired to chant “WHAT DO WE WANT – DEAD COPS, WHEN DO WE WANT THEM NOW” ….. continues.
    Obama invited Black Lives Matter to the White House and Hillary is supported by them. Do you really think a Clinton presidency will not cause more LEOS to die ……….
