There is good news. NYPD may have found the gun used in the McCluskey murder!

A paramedic in New York City was shot inside an ambulance by a man he was transporting to a hospital, but two good Samaritans quickly intervened to apprehend the fleeing suspect.

EMTs from the Richmond University Medical Center responded at approximately 7:40 p.m. Wednesday to reports of a disorderly person at the Funkey Monkey Lounge on Staten Island.

Upon their arrival, EMTs observed a 37-year-old man in front of the bar and escorted him to the ambulance.

While the ambulance traveled Forest Avenue to the Richmond University Medical Center, the patient brandished a gun and fired one round inside the ambulance, striking a 25-year-old EMT in the shoulder, NYPD Inspector Mark Molinari told reporters.

The driver pulled over the ambulance near 646 Forest Ave., where the patient exited the ambulance’s back door. The man was quickly apprehended by a retired NYPD detective and an off-duty Department of Sanitation police lieutenant, Molinari said




To add….The Dept of Sanitation in NYC has it’s own police department?

Brings a new meaning to the phrase “police call.”

A few weeks ago, I pick up a dude involved in an accident on the border of our Township and North Philly. The accident was actually in Philly but we beat fire rescue medics in.

I get dude in Ambulance, start my evaluation, take off for ER in Philly, near by. During exam, I find gun in dudes waist band.

I was like, bro! The gun was legal, dude had a CCW permit. Maybe, should have said something, right?

Years ago, had a guy pull a gun on me, aimed at my face. Dude changed his mind, ran away.

Had knives pulled on me, too. We wear vests at work.

Yessssss. Similar experiences. In back of bus at a scene treating GSW, preparing to pull away. Back door opens, dude asks if the patient is alive. I said, "yeah, for now." Guy shot him two, three more times, pointed his gun at us, and ran away. BTW, guy was still alive after being shot, again.

My best gun-on-patient story. MVC, tatted-up guy looking like a banger is on the LSB, GCS 10ish. Starting cutting his clothes off...one...two guns fall out. Turns out he was DEA. Cops on scene thought he was a bad guy.

I was waiting on that!

The whole thing happened so fast it was over before we could react. How we weren't shot is beyond me. Our ears were ringing for a while, boss took us out of service for the rest of the shift. They offered to give us a couple weeks off to regroup. My partner took the two weeks, I took a week, we went back on the job.

You were lucky enough to have been involved with the one gang-banger that could actually shoot and hit a target accurately from three feet in...

Depends on the medic/EMT. I know some providers that are absolute fucking retards and I wonder how they past school.

Those same providers cannot work a proper trauma or code and we want them carrying a glock 19? Lol

If you ask me, I'd rather see EMS providers taught some empty hand fighting skills, ground skills and maybe a taser would suffice.

As a SWAT medic, I had to qualify on the depts pistol (M@P 40), the AR and shotgun.

No doubt if that happens, lots of training and an ROE would be needed.

Not gonna lie, I've been in empty hand fights, taking Krav Maga in high-school helped, I've slapped a jaw loose once or twice in my career.

Chemical sedation is so much better for combative assholes.

Don’t we want everyone carrying guns to prevent mass shootings?

“Agree with much of training of concealed carriers and where mass killer events happen but again, respectfully, I think you're missing the point, whether it's liberal NY or Texas, having an armed society, trained or not is safer. I don't put much trust in WAPO neither.

I agree that most people are fucking idiots. I'd wager that those folks with banana syndrome, head in phones, tie tok gay fucks, leftist skells have less situational awareness and are totally ok with a nanny state taking control of their lives and safety.

In summary, I'd rather have a peaceable armed society” -you.

I also worry about how people would react if we were to start carrying. Would certain groups start viewing us as basically police with a different uniform? I'm super inexperienced, so maybe my fear is unfounded, but I'm worried it would paint targets on our backs more than it would help us solve bad situations, even if we did get the training and such required to do it.

Absolutely but I think having medics look like cops in the projects sends a shitty message that, if I am there to take care of you then some corner boy sees me with a sidearm on the MICU, maybe me walking out of the projects, safely is not a thing. You work the streets before, I presume. Many times, our only saving grace in the hood is the fact that we are there taking care of granny of the family.

Add me walking in, vested up cause that's mandated now, gun on my hip. I'm no different that the sector cops that the corner boys dislike and shoot at, day in and day out.
Ever work a hot scene on a July night in the hood?

I'd rather see a 19 year old green paramedic able to know some Gracie moves than pull a gun out because some dude is fucking jacked on wet, punching buses and concrete.

To add, if, cops would, if they could, respond to EMS calls, it would not be necessary to arm up.

The AO I work, just on the other side of Philly, knife and gun club area, our Township cops show up for 95 percent of jobs. They only PNR nursing homes for the most part.

I've ask cops to pat a pt down, numerous times over the years. Now, I've gotten into the habit asking about weapons on all. I tell them, all the hospitals in the area are wanding for weapons.
