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.
