    </TD></TR><TR align=left><TD class=Box_23574933_Td width="100%">NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- An off-duty police officer has opened fire in the Bronx.

    Police say the cop shot and and killed a suspect who allegedly tried to rob his wife and daughter.

    It happened inside 314 East 201st Street in Bedford Park just after 11:30 Saturday night.

    Authorities say a 30-year old woman and her 3-year old daughter were followed into an elevator where the suspect grabbed them and pulled out a gun.

    PHOTO: NYPD says this was suspect's weapon recovered near the scene.

    The woman screamed and her husband, the off-duty officer, ran to her aid. A witness says he heard him identify himself as a policeman.

    Shots were fired and the suspect was hit. Police say he fled the scene, but was arrested a short distance away.

    He later died of his injuries at Montefiore Medical Center.

    So we can infer from this story that it is perfectly acceptable for a cop to kill someone to protect his family, but you and I, on the other hand, are an entirely different story.
