Ex-Con shot NYPD Cop to Death at a Traffic Stop, was arrested 14 times by Cops

New York City, NY: According to Mayor Eric Adams, a New York Police Department officer was shot and died on Monday while performing his duties in Queens.

During a traffic check in Far Rockaway, 31-year-old NYPD officer Jonathan Diller was shot in the torso beneath his bullet-resistant vest. After being brought to Jamaica Hospital, Diller passed away there.

According to the police, the car’s driver had been arrested 14 times, while the passenger—who was also the shooter—had been arrested four times. Two suspects had been brought into custody.

“It’s because of a senseless act of violence that we witness a person had a total disregard for the safety of this city,” Mayor Adams said at a news conference Monday evening. “It is the good guys against the bad guys and these bad guys are violent. They carry guns and the symbol of our public safety, which is police uniform, they have a total disregard for,” Adams said.

The traffic stop at 1919 Mott Avenue was carried out by Diller and his companion on Monday at 5:48 p.m., according to the police. One of the criminals pulled a gun and aimed it at the officers as they got closer to the car. After shots were fired, Diller’s partner hit the armed suspect with his own gun in return.

The suspect, according to the police, was also transferred to Jamaica Hospital and is reportedly in stable condition.

Diller made more than 70 arrests, according to the NYPD, while he was a police officer. Diller departs from Stephanie, his spouse, and their offspring.

“Tonight this city lost a hero, a wife lost her husband, and a young child lost their father,” Police Commissioner Edward Caban said on social media. “We struggle to find the words to express the tragedy of losing one of our own. The work that police officer Jonathan Diller did each day to make this city a safer place will NEVER be forgotten,” Caban said on X.
