YPD officer Wilbert Mora has died four days after he was critically injured in an ambush attack which also killed his rookie partner. 

The 27-year-old had been hospitalized since being gunned down along with 22-year-old partner Jason Rivera in Harlem on Friday while responding to a domestic violence call. They are the first two officers to be killed by gunfire in the city since 2017. 

Mora needed two surgeries after he was shot in the head and a bullet lodged in his brain, but he could not be saved. He died a NYU Langone Hospital on Tuesday afternoon after being taken off life support. He was placed on life support so that his organs could be harvested for donation, according to the New York Post.

Career criminal Lashawn McNeil, 47, who carried out the attack, was shot in the head and arm by a third officer responding to the call, Sumit Sulan. He died from his injuries on Monday.

On Tuesday, NYPD Comissioner Keechant Sewell said that Wilbert is 'three times a hero'. 

'For choosing a life of service. For sacrificing his life to protect others. For giving life even in death through organ donation. Our heads are bowed and our hearts are heavy,' she said.

New York City's new mayor Eric Adams has said that he believes 'everyone needs to see' the distressing bodycam footage of the shooting, which has been described as a 'complete execution'.

'When we talk about the dangers involved in policing, it tore me apart to see what happened to those officers and what has happened to far too many officers,' the mayor - who is a former police officer - told 1010 WINS radio on Tuesday. 

McNeil, who was shot by a third officer, Sumit Sulan, has since succumbed to his injuries and died on Monday

Yesterday, he vowed to end the scourge of gun violence plaguing his city by reviving a disbanded police unit, injecting cash into community projects, and vowing to dismantle weapons trafficking networks. 

'We are going to do a lot more than pray. We are going to turn our pain into purpose,' he said in a City Hall press conference on Monday. 

'We will not surrender our city to the violent few.'

There have been 73 shootings so far this year in the city - an increase of 23.7 percent on last year. A total of 82 people have been shot, up from 67 in the first three weeks of 2021.

On Monday, the mother of the gunman who carried out the attack on the officers, Shirley Sourzes spoke to the New York Post hours before her son's death, saying: 'I am deeply sorry.' 

Sourzes made the call to cops to report her son's domestic abuse on the night the killing took place.

She now says: 'If I knew, I never would have made the phone call. I would never have called.'

'I would like to say to Mr and Mrs (Rivera) that I am deeply sorry. I know that there is not words that I can express. Your pain. Your sorrow.

'Me and my family are not proud of my son taking of life. There is nothing I can say to heal your sorrow, but God is a comforter. … And I know that he sent your son to do his will. I don’t understand it. It’s not fair. My heart goes out to you and your family.' 

The career criminal was shot in the head and right arm by Officer Sumit Sulan moments after McNeil ambushed two officers who were responding to a domestic dispute call from McNeil's mother at her Harlem apartment. 

Sources told the New York Daily News that McNeil argued with his mother, Sourzes, about his veganism. NYPD senior officials told NBC that McNeil had moved in with his Sourzes at her Harlem apartment in November 2021 and had tried to convert his family to share his beliefs.  

McNeil's mother Shirley Sourzes spoke to the New York Post on Monday just hours before her son died, and said she wishes she never made the 911 call that led to the deadly ambush.  

'If I knew, I never would have made the phone call,' said the mom, who said he son was mentally unstable. 'I would never have called!'

NYPD officer is killed in shooting and a second officer is in a critical condition

A rookie New York City police officer has been shot and killed and his partner is fighting for his life after responding to a domestic violence call in Harlem. 

Jason Rivera, who signed up a little over a year ago, in November 2020, died in the shooting.

His partner Wilbert Mora, who joined the NYPD in 2018, is currently fighting for his life.

Multiple police sources initially said both had died. 

The pair were responding to a domestic violence call at around 5:10pm involving a mother and a son on West 135th Street.

The gunman, Lashawn J. McNeil, 47 - who was out on probation at the time - also died. A police source said a third officer at the scene, who is relatively new to the NYPD, shot McNeil after the two officers were struck by gunfire.

The officers' deaths are the first under Mayor Eric Adams, a former NYPD officer, who was elected in part to combat the city's surging crime Adams was on his way to the hospital, his spokesman said.

They are the fourth and fifth officers shot so far this year - by comparison, last year, a total of 10 police officers were shot in the entire state of New York.

Police say the suspect was in a back room when officers engaged him. 

One of the officers was struck in the face by gunfire.

The officers were taken to Harlem Hospital. 

'Due to a police incident, avoid the area of West 135 Street between Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd and Malcolm X Blvd. in Manhattan,' the NYPD said. 

'Use an alternate route when traveling nearby and expect a police presence in the surrounding area.'
