Alexander Bonds who shot dead NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia early Wednesday had rather very odd behavior the day he committed the crime. His behavior was so odd that his girlfriend tried calling 911 twice and said her boyfriend was behaving strangely.
Reports claim that the woman who was reportedly led away by cops following the shooting incident from her one room apartment had expressed apprehensions about her boyfriend’s psychological condition during the 911 calls.
Officials claim that the woman who still remains unidentified made a call to 911 in the evening on the Fourth of July expressing apprehensions about schizophrenic boyfriend saying he was walking the Bronx streets and behaving strangely. Later, he ambushed the female NYPD officer at precisely the same spot.
Despite trying to warn the officials about her boyfriend, she didn’t know if her boyfriend was armed. When asked if the man was armed, she said no. when asked about the location of the man who has been charged multiple times in the past, the woman directed police to a street in Mott Haven.
According to a NYDailyNews report, officials claim that the man had deep rooted hatred for cops and had no other motive behind the killing of the NYPD officer. The 34-year old Bonds shot Officer Miosotis Familia, 48, in the face. Officials claim that Bonds fired at Familia through the window of an NYPD mobile command vehicle that was parked near Morris Avenue and East 183rd Street in Fordham Heights at about 12:30 a.m., officials said.
In the shootout that ensued, the shooter was killed by responding officers, and the stolen revolver was recovered from the scene. Bonds posted a Facebook Live video in September 2016, accusing an officer of raping a girl and going unpunished for the crime. He also complained about prison conditions and said officers beat and killed inmates.
The man can be heard clearly ranting against the cops. “I don’t care about 100 police watching this…I got broken ribs for a reason, son, we gonna shake…We gonna do something. We can’t be dying for free, getting raped for free, just for them to give you hush money. Is you stupid? I don’t want the money. I want justice.”
Reports suggest that moments before the shooting on Wednesday, Bonds was seen on surveillance video leaving a bodega, pulling up his hoodie and approaching the van. Wearing black gloves and a hoodie on a warm summer night, Bonds seemed “dressed to kill,” said one high-ranking police official later Wednesday. The same man had been arrested for an armed robbery in the year 2005 and criminal possession of drugs in the past.
