Lieutenant Federico Narvaez was shot and killed after being flagged down by a female pedestrian.

The pedestrian told him that she was being stalked, and Lieutenant Narvaez approached the man after calling for backup. The man turned and fired, striking Lieutenant Narvaez in the face as he exited his patrol car.

The man ran into a nearby apartment building and became trapped between two sets of doors. When other officers located them, he opened fire on them through the doors. The officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

Lieutenant Narvaez had received numerous awards for Excellent and Meritorious Police Duty. He had served with the New York City Police Department for 17 years.
