Jason Rivera Biography
Who is Jason Rivera ?
NYPD emergency call center records show how a seemingly routine domestic call Friday night in Manhattan quickly turned deadly.
Before Officer Jason Rivera was killed and Officer Wilbert Mora was critically wounded by Lashawn McNeil’s Glock .45, police had little indication they were headed for an ambush.
The NYPD received a 911 call from Shirley Sourzes, a woman who was having a dispute with her son in a Harlem apartment at 5:09 p.m. m., according to call logs obtained by the Post.
“HE IS THREATENING TO DO THINGS TO HER,” the record read. “HE IS IN THE HOUSE NOW.”
But the record indicated that the unidentified woman told the dispatcher that no one in the Harlem apartment had a weapon or was injured. McNeil, in fact, was brandishing a gun with an illegal high-capacity magazine.
Over the next few minutes, dispatchers wrote that her caller said her son was at her house and was “threatening to do thing to her.”
For over an hour, there were no further log entries, until a 6:21 log of “SHOTS” was entered.
Rivera, Mora and a third cop had arrived at 119 West 135th Street’s apartment 1D and spoke to the woman and another one of her sons in the living room before walking down a long narrow hallway to check on McNeil. The alleged killer then swung the door open and opened fire on the officers, according to previous descriptions. He was shot by the third officer as he tried to flee the apartment and remained in critical condition.
At 6:22, three requests for a “bus,” police jargon for an ambulance, were made over 10-second period. Twenty-one seconds later, the emergency vehicle was en route to 119 West 135th St., according to the log.
A “Level 1 Mobilization in regards to 3 MOS shot” was requested at 6:24, meaning a deployment of emergency resources were needed for three members of service that had been shot .
Four seconds later, officials clarified that two officers had been shot, and over the next several minutes a flurry of 43 urgent radio dispatches showed police had rushed to block off the street, brought the injured officers to nearby Harlem Hospital, established a staging area for first responders and secured a blood bank for the injured cops.
At 6:28, nine minutes after authorities received word of the shooting, Rivera and Mora were at the hospital.
Rivera, a 22-year-old rookie died Friday night. Mora, 27 — who had a bullet lodged in his brain, according to sources — underwent a second surgery Saturday and remained in critical condition.
