Police Say Gunman Shoots 4, Then Is Shot by NYPD Sergeant

September 27, 2021

NEW YORK — A gunman shot four men during a dispute that spilled out of an upper Manhattan bar on Monday and then was himself shot by a police sergeant, authorities said.

The shooting happened at around 4 a.m. outside the 11:11 Restaurant and Lounge in the Inwood neighborhood, police said.

A group of men were engaged in "a strong discussion" outside the bar after closing time, Chief of Patrol Juanita Holmes said. The sergeant and an officer were patrolling in the area and had pulled over to speak to the bar's security staff when shots were fired, she said.

The sergeant took cover and fired, striking the gunman, Holmes said.

The gunman and the four other injured men were taken to hospitals and were all expected to survive, police said.

Charges against the suspected gunman were pending.
