Police Officer Anthony Mosomillo was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a parolee who had missed his court appearance.

He was shot four times after the suspect's girlfriend attacked Officer Mosomillo and his partner. During an intense and violent struggle with both the wanted man and his girlfriend, the subject got possession of Officer Mosomillo's partner's weapon and shot Officer Mosomillo.

Officer Mosomillo was able to return fire, killing the suspect. Officer Mosomillo was taken to Kings County Hospital where he later died during surgery.

The female subject was arrested and convicted of manslaughter. She was released in December 2019 following a 20-year sentence but was re-sentenced to 2 years after a parole violation.

Anthony and mike calabrese greeted me at the door on my first day at the 67 in 1991. They brought me downstairs and gave me a locker and said “we are your family now” I will never forget that. Anthony was the nicest person I’ve known on the job. He was just the best, there’s nothing more to say.
