Romero was pronounced dead on arrival at Lutheran Hospital. In his backpack, police found a loaded .44 revolver, a gallon-size bag of marijuana, and two wallets that belonged to other people, stuffed with cash. Police sources say he has 10 prior arrests, including seven felonies, on his record.
Somebody should have told that guy that guns are illegal in NYC.
If everything went down as reported in the article, then mad props to Officers Kelleher and Hayes. That's some fast thinking to tie up a revolver's hammer at bad breath distance, and equally quick thinking on the part of Hayes to move to where she had a clear line-of-fire before shooting the goblin. Apparently she fired only one round, scored a vital hit, and didn't perforate any scenery or innocent bystanders. Nice shootin', Tex.
