PBA blasts BK judge for granting bail to suspected shooter

BROOKLYN - The head of the NYPD union is blasting a Brooklyn criminal court judge for granting bail to the man suspected in a shooting that injured an off-duty police officer.

Patrolmen's Benevolent Association (PBA) President Patrick Lynch says Judge Joann Lopez made a bad call allowing Eric Greenridge's release. Police say Greenridge was involved in the shootout in Brooklyn on Monday.

Lynch says Greenridge is on parole and committed a violation when he fired his gun on the street. He says he wants the bail revoked and Greenridge back in jail.
