A New York City police detective was shot and killed by "friendly fire" while another officer was shot on Tuesday as they responded to an armed robbery, the city's police chief said.
The NYPD and the city of NY are mourning the death of one of their own.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said, "It was a hard, painful night for our city".
New York City Police identified the fallen officer as NYPD Detective Brian Simonsen, a 42-year-old, 19-year member of the NYPD. Occured at Atlantic Ave & 121 Street.
"They did not hesitate".
The officer then says, "He's still in the store". At first, the front of the store appeared empty, he said.
"Sources said the detective and sergeant, both of whom were assigned to the local 102nd Precinct Detective Squad, responded after the perpetrator walked into the T-Mobile store with a gun and a duffle bag and took two people hostage and brought them into a back room". Police say they were wanted in connection with a string of robberies in the area.

"That was when Detective Simonsen was shot", the commissioner said.
The officers opened fire on the suspect, and as they backed out of the store, they were struck by bullets from cops outside, O'Neill said. He then blamed the suspected robber for the incident.
'Make no mistake about it, friendly fire aside, it is because of the actions of the suspect that Detective Simonsen is dead, ' the commissioner said as he choked back tears. A passerby stopped and drove him to the hospital in his vehicle.
The suspected gunman is a 27-year-old resident and "career criminal", according to O'Neill.
The suspected gunman was also shot and injured, and also taken to the hospital.
The suspect is dead, it's reported by NY1. "We will be there for his family and his fellow officers tonight, tomorrow and every day after that". The officer was killed in what appears to be "an absolute tragic case of friendly fire", NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill said in a press conference late Tuesday.
Mayor de Blasio echoed the police commissioner's statements saying, "I want to just note how hard it is for our men and women in uniform to go into a situation like this one, to go into a situation where people's live are in danger, where there's someone with a weapon ready to recklessly use it at any moment and our officers, our detectives, our sergeants go in selflessly to protect others and they know it's a moment where they can not hesitate".
