NY cops shot, one killed, at block party

Two New York City police officers and five civilians were shot, one of them fatally, at a block party in Manhattan, a police spokesman said.

At about 3 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to an argument at a party in Harlem, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said at a news conference. A man police identified as Angel Alvarez and another man were arguing, apparently over a woman, Kelly said.

Alvarez shot and killed the other man, and then shot at officers as they approached, he said.

    Like i keep saying this is happening across the entire country and the cops are getting away with it. I read an article here CNN where there is a law that you cannot video police.... so what protection do citizen have against this cop abuse and mistreatment and yes murder.

    You two morons must not have read the article, or else you didn't comprehend what it said. The guy shot the cops, not the other way around. Read it again.

    The guy was shot 21 times, after SHOOTING at the cops. What do you expect the cops to do? Say to the jerk that you shouldn't kill someone, now go home and be a good boy. He's been in trouble with the law before. His life is over
