A New York City police officer was shot and killed early Sunday…and that tragic story appears to have a local connection. The alleged shooter has been identified as 27-year-old Antonio Williams of Binghamton. He was fatally shot by police after a struggle with officers in the Bronx. Police said Williams has a record of narcotics and burglary convictions.


The wounded officer, shot three times, was identified as 33-year-old Brian Mulkeen. He was rushed to a hospital where he later died.
