Manhunt continues for 2nd suspect in death of NYPD cop

After more than 24 hours, the manhunt continues today for a second suspect in connection with the fatal shooting of an NYPD officer in Brooklyn.

Police have released surveillance video of the man they say was involved in a home invasion in Cypress Hills early yesterday morning. Officer Peter Figoski, 47, was shot in the face while responding to the call and died from his injuries at Jamaica Hospital in Queens.

According to authorities, 27-year-old Lamont Pride, of Coney Island, is in custody for allegedly shooting Figoski. They say his gun was retrieved near the scene and he is now waiting arraignment.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male between 24-30 years old. A reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
