An NYPD sergeant was shot in the head and chest and critically wounded in Queens on Saturday.

The anti-crime officer worked out of the 105th Precinct in Queens Village and was on duty when he was hit at around 6:15 p.m. It was not clear whether he was in uniform – anti-crime officers often do plainclothes patrols.

A suspect was holed up in a nearby building at 212th Street and 104th Avenue. Police sent hostage negotiaters to try to talk him out – but it was not clear if he actually was holding people against their will.

The cop was rushed to Jamaica Hospital in a radio car.

The officer was the fifth New York City cop shot in the last five months.
