SHOTS FIRED: NYPD Cops Shoot 130 Bullets At Armed Man Who Threatened To Kill City Officials

A man who made threats to kill the governor and many others died after being fatally struck by NYPD cops who fired a jaw-dropping total of 130 bullets at him.

The incident reportedly took place in the city of New York, USA.

Six police officers and one sergeant discharged a total of 130 shots during a confrontation with an armed gunman, later identified as Raul Antonio Hardy, 60.

Newsflash obtained the footage from the New York Police Department (NYPD), along with a statement according to which Hardy had called the police claiming he was going to kill the governor and the police chief.

Hardy fully identified himself and gave his address during the call, and claimed he was “strapped” and “going to blow the first police head off”.

A little while later, Hardy made yet another phone call to the police, saying he had a “fever to kill”.

NYPD Sergeant Gagnon and six other officers were dispatched to the location and secured a safe perimeter around Hardy’s residence while maintaining a vantage point.

Shortly after, Hardy emerged from his house and officers ordered him to show them his hands.

Body-worn footage shows the moment Hardy shouts “fuck you, bitch” and takes out a firearm, reportedly shooting at least four times in the officers’ direction.

Hardy was later taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Officers later retrieved his firearm, a Walther PK380, near the spot where he fell.

The investigation is currently ongoing.
