Police are still looking for a 20-year old man wanted in the shooting of a New York City Police officer last week inside the Seward Park Extension housing complex.  The NYPD is now offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect, who fled after the early morning incident last Thursday.

The reward money is on top of the $10,000 previously offered by the “Cop Shot” program and the $2,000 Crimestoppers routinely pays for information leading to an arrest.   The suspect, depicted in the police sketch posted above, has a skinny build. He was wearing a long black t-shirt, long red basketball shorts with a cream-colored stripe. His hair is styled in corn rows with beads in them.

If you have information about this crime, call  Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.

Officer Brian Groves went home from the hospital on Friday.  A bullet proof vest saved his life.
