MPD Chief Peter Newsham writes this morning:
“A long and tough night 4 the MPD family, one officer remains critical but stable & the other is in fair condition. Thanks 4 all your support”
A PoPville reader shares her account from the scene:
“We were sitting on the terrace at Grand Central so literally a sidewalk between us and the incident. There was an Uber driver stopped letting people out and a bus behind it, with the driver leaning heavily on its horn. That seemed to be it, then we heard a horrible noise. At first, we thought it was the bus having hit the crosswalk side, but then people starting running and we learned it was the bicycle officers that had been hit. I have never seen so many cops show up so quickly in my life. 18th St was blocked from Belmont to Calvert past the Adamo.”
