The police officer who was shot in the head while sitting in a police vehicle in the Bronx early Wednesday has died according to law enforcement sources. The officer has been identified as 48-year-old Miosotis Familia.
A suspect came up and blasted Familia through the window without warning, sources said.
“It was an attempted cop assassination,” one law enforcement source told The Post.
The suspect approached at 12:30 a.m. as Familia sat inside a temporary headquarters vehicle at East 183rd Street and Morris Avenue in Fordham Heights, according to sources.
The suspect has been identified as Alexander Bonds, 34. Cops say he was on parole for a 2014 robbery in Syracuse.
Familia — a 12-year-veteran who is with the Anti-Crime unit of the 46th Precinct — was rushed to St. Barnabus Hospital, where she was undergoing surgery but could not be saved.
“This is absolutely an unprovoked attack,” said NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill.
The commissioner said the suspect fired one round, after which the shot officer’s partner called for backup.
Two other officers confronted Bonds about a block away, and shot him dead, police said.
