Three NYPD officers are hospitalized and a suspect in critical condition after what police say was an unprovoked attack on officers during an anti-looting patrol in Brooklyn. It happened just before 12 a.m. Thursday near Church and Flatbush avenues. Police say two officers were on an anti-looting patrol when a man walked up and stabbed one of those officers on the left side of his neck. Seconds later, officers nearby heard gunshots and ran towards the scene. "We believe that when they got there they saw the perp with a gun in his hand that we believe belonged to one of the officers," said Police Commissioner Dermot Shea. "It appears to be a complete cowardly, despicable, unprovoked attack on a defenseless police officer. And thank God we're not planning a funeral right now."
