NYPD Crime: Armed Man Struck by Unmarked Police Car in Brownsville!

In the early hours of the morning, a dramatic incident unfolded in Brownsville, as a man wielding a firearm was involved in a confrontation with law enforcement. The NYPD reported that the individual, later identified as 29-year-old Giovanni Mayo, pointed a gun at a woman in the vicinity of East New York Avenue and Ralph Avenue around 3:30 a.m.

Detectives, who were stationed in a summer violence reduction zone, witnessed the altercation and sprang into action. According to NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell, when officers attempted to intercept Mayo, he attempted to flee on foot. In the ensuing chase, Mayo was struck by an unmarked police vehicle. The impact resulted in him sustaining injuries requiring surgery, and he was promptly transported to Brookdale Hospital.

Chief Chell emphasized the pivotal role of the detectives, stating they were “exactly where they were supposed to be and probably prevented a shooting.” A firearm was recovered at the scene, further affirming the severity of the situation.

However, Mayo’s family has contested the events, asserting that he posed no threat to anyone and was not attempting to harm law enforcement officers. His sister, Alexis Mayo, expressed dismay over the incident, emphasizing that Giovanni was not targeting the police.
